|This is a copy & paste from the ’Guardian’ of a statement made by Moll Prince;|
On Tuesday, Molly Prince, the managing director of CPUK, reconfirmed that a number of staff were unpaid but apologised for the fact that a number of their stewards had to sleep under London Bridge.
In a statement Prince said: "The London Bridge incident should never have happened but was to some extent outside our control, the coach drivers insisted on leaving. For this we sincerely apologise, on investigation this morning the majority of the team were happy, fed and looked after as best possible under the circumstances.
"We are not in the business of exploiting anyone," the statement added.
Speaking about those who were unpaid, Prince said: "The only ones that won’t be paid are because they don’t want to be paid. They want to do this voluntarily, [to] get the work experience." This was because they would no longer be able to claim jobseeker benefits if they accepted a wage for the work,
Believe that & you also believe in the tooth fairy.
A situation may be desperate but never serious
