Oh I don’t know it’s a bit of an ask. Must be able to work for minimum wage, afford to get to St Johns and back everyday on poverty wages and be vaccinated.

Is £380 per week and 5 weeks paid holidays a year, with food and drink provided during working hours really a poverty-level wage? That's what was advertised to prospective employees in that press release.

Just saying.

It’s £10.13 an hour assuming 37.5 hours per week. 

Living wage is £10.87 an hour this year.

It’s good money for general cafe work which is what is described in that advert but there is absolutely nothing about the supervisor role and that’s shit money for a supervisor, assuming there is responsibility for staff, not just the coffee.

I don’t think it is unreasonable to expect staff to be vaccinated, small businesses cannot afford to have a lot of staff illnesses.   Not sure about the GCEs.  modern tills do all the work for you and exams in English are not a guarantee of the ability to converse with customers.  I think perhaps the requirements are a bit optimistic but a high bar is no bad thing.    I would think this job would be ok for anyone living in St Johns or even Peel, free meals are also a plus and free parking.   The Anti Vax gang will have loved this chance to air their views.    I have a friend who will not have a jab for anything, never has, her parents did not believe in them and she has never had a needle in her arm or anywhere else.   I respect her beliefs but get a bit riled when she crows every time one of our jabbed friends get the virus this is the thing most people respect people’s personal choices not to be jabbed as long as they respect the choices of the people who have chosen to be vaccinated.

Presumably after a tirade of abuse from the usual suspects.

To be fair they deserve it. What if the only suitable applicant was recovering from cancer and had been advised against the vaccine. Would they reject her on those grounds?

No, they don't deserve it. Nobody deserves a load of abuse simply for doing what they thought was right. It's rather disquieting that you think they do.

Indeed.  We are being told to take control of mitigating our own risks, this one mitigation. 

"What ifs" are all very well, but the "what if" of a recovering cancer patient being the only applicant is unlikely as my understanding is that immuno-compromised people were being advised to have the jab.

Indeed, a first, second, third jabs and a booster jab.

What if the owners are vulnerable, or one of the existing staff?
