Compass are stupid

Worse than that, Compass are innumerate.

Here is their calculation of how much you get on the minimum wage.

Calculation: £44.16 per day. This works out as £220.80 per week or £11481.60 per year. 5 days a week, 40 hours per week (age 25).

That link there takes you to the TUC calculator which, when you put in the same criteria, gives you this result:

Based on the information you have provided, we estimate you should receive £45.84 per day for the work that you do. This works out as £229.20 per week or £11918.40 per year.

No, really, they cannot manage to write down the numbers that the calculator that they themselves use gives them.

Is it any wonder that we simply assume that all at Compass are thick as pig shit?

  1. They’ve used £5.52 per hour, which was the rate before October 2008, when it went up to £5.73 per hour. Most likely some dozy sod has cut-and-pasted from an old report.

  2. “Most likely some dozy sod has cut-and-pasted from an old report.”

    A thorough report, and we should all pay attention to the sage conclusions therein.

  3. Why did you put in a link to that compass site ?
    It has a picture of Toynbee on, seeing that ruined my whole day.
