Entitlement culture April 28, 2017

From the Guardian…

The Tate has come under fire after it asked members of staff, many of whom are not paid the London living wage, to contribute towards a boat for the departing director, Nicholas Serota, just one week after their canteen discount was taken away.


A notice which went up in the staff rooms of both Tate Modern and Tate Britain on Wednesday asked employees – including security, cleaners, and those maintain the galleries and work in the cafe and gift shop – to “put money towards a sailing boat” as a “surprise gift” for Serota.

Indicates how out of touch those at the top are…… oh and it looks like the “surprise” bit is gone!

its unbelievable, isn’t it? I wonder is it a function of age that so much of modern life seems to have become what I would once have thought of as satire.

QUOTE: The success of the David Hockney exhibition at Tate Britain, which was lucrative for the gallery, had put even more pressure on the overworked staff, who had to cover later opening hours and deal with huge crowds, she said. UNQUOTE

Total bastards. Making tons of cash, making the plebs work their arses off (zero hour contracts), and then they want a bloody boat.

Yes, mlord, twouldst be an honour, sorr.
