Listen in, listen Ian!
BA asks staff to work for nothing|
While I don't dispute the need to save money, stuff like "BA's chief executive Willie Walsh has already agreed to work unpaid in July, forgoing his month's salary of £61,000." annoys me a bit. I suggest that if one's monthly wage is over £60,000, it's probably going to be easier to put a little by each month to make up the shortfall than if one's monthly wage is £1500 or so. I hate it when the wealthy go showboating like this - "Look at this not really a sacrifice I've made! You should make one too!"
