i have never gone out for Xmas dinner, but I appreciate that many people do. My nephew has a temporary job with them as a waiter in his few weeks off Uni.
The carvery has a good deal of £3.50-5 for meals but on Xmas day it costs about £30 a head, always going to be expensive Xmas day.
Was shocked to discover that the staff get the same rate of pay, he earned the same that day as any other. This also applied to all the other staff who are not temporary apparently. I am appalled by this. Seems they are cashing on on Xmas at the expense of the staff.
I am sure most of the customers assume that the higher charge is due to staff wages, not in this case.
Like many his age, he is just grateful for the work and the money he does manage to earn. Crown carveries, morally bankrupt IMO
