Restaurant Association chairman Mike Egan on how to treat your staff during a recession:
“if some of our employees cannot adapt fast enough we will drag them out of the cave and leave them to the sabre-tooth tigers and find staff who can and will adapt”.
Most of the people he’s talking about are on minimum wage or close to it, and nearly all of them will be on 90 day fire at will periods.
As the National-led government contemplates further attacks on our rights at work it’s worth bearing in mind just whose interests they’re working for.
UPDATE: Seems Mike Egan owns One Red Dog and Monsoon Poon. I’d encourage Standard readers to take their custom elsewhere.
