God forbid we should entice people off benefits and into work by offering decent wages and working environments.

Quick Google shows KFC made £129 M profit in 2018 with a typical franchise owner taking home £50-£80 k per annum.

Hardly chicken feed.

Pay people decent wages, train them and staff the outlets properly and the owners will make even more money in the long run as customers will be served quicker, quality goes up and people return in greater numbers more frequently.

It's not the laziness of the unemployed that's the problem,  it's the greed and lack of foresight from KFC and the rest.

KFC don't set wages for the stores. In fact they don't operate any of them. Each one is operated by an independant business trading under licence which gives them access to the branding and supply chain. Everything else is upto the independant including pay rates. 

KFC take a licencing fee + % of profit from the independant.

How many of these jobs you see are for 35 hours a week guarenteed?  As has been said on here previously, it may be 10 hours one week, 0 the next, so who can plan on that for a regular income to support a family?

Its literally been explained to you. These are, in the main,. ZERO HOUR CONTRACTS.

 

You could have 35 hours one week and then zero for the next two weeks.  Would you be prepared to do that?

my local shop offers 20 hours minimum and cannot get staff ,also the universal credit makes up the rest,plus a jobs a job and if you have one its easier to find another one,plus you say stay at home dont work,dont take a zero hour contract job,but it proves to your next employer you are wanting work,i agree its not a great idea this zero hour contract ,but it suits some,but my main gripe is we cannot get folk to do normal jobs.some you must agree are just lazy and dont want work?

I'll ask again, since you ignored it the last time, do you work?

there are a lot of people in this city that WOULD NOT work even if they got nothing off the state, I know of families of 3 generations of being unemployed, that is the sad state of the country today. they do not want work at any price, BUT some of them don't mind doing a bit of fiddling now and again some more now than again, doing it in take aways as well.

Why not take on a part-time role in one of these establishments. Lots of older people do so. I'm sure you can manage on 16hrs at 9 quid an hour like you're saying others should....

if i could i would,so you say its better to stay at home  than work ?even a few hours work and the state makes up the rest and your better off,its strange a tax payer would advise people unless its the perfect job to stay at home on the dole,i will stay with the theory that if you have even a part time job,its easier to get another job,also many folk cannot get the job they want,but they work doing any work ,so they have a CV to show they are decent and hard working.if you take a job and sometimes hour are low the goverment make up the rest making you better off than staying at home.but you believe its better to stay at home unless its a perfect job,sorry lifes not like that.
