it was that cow thatcher that killed off the mining industry

dated old socialist, that is why RL is dying, so are the old fans.

Scargill and Kinnock killed mining, not Baroness Thatcher, you know, the one who was PM for years.

She saved the Falklands

Blair destroyed Iraq & Afghanistan
Brown sold the gold at a record low

Brown never met a US President

so think on, and be greatful for the years of Conservatism that put the money in the bank before Labour squandered it

Labour closed down more pits than the Tories ever did.
Irony is represented below.

and for our fantastic coach; who is a man of high integrity and doesn't deserve the classless treatment he has received from many on this forum: a real gentleman Rowley is.

Just so you know, Paul Rowley is highly thought of here in Toronto.

Surprised It took you so long to suss it out . Whilst not knowing the background to this, I suspect Michael Carter will rectify it pretty quickly if it is correct, as I suspect the other clubs will do

I'd be wary of reading much into this without the detail. It's highly unlikely these clubs will have been paying below minimum wage in terms of the hourly pay. Most companies are on top of that.

It's more likely to do with rounding clocking in/out times and the joke of a change in interpretation of what constitutes a uniform (so what they said was ok last year, this year isn't but they never advised anyone of the change).

The minimum wage is probably too low in my view but the way HMRC have policed it this last 12 months has the clear hallmark of a money making exercise.


Absolutely correct - whilst it's easy to pick from the list and make an assumption, hardly any of those named and shamed will be based on a straightforward failure to pay the NMW; it's actually quite easy to fall foul of it now, since HMRC have either changed their guidance, or just not issued any, on some issues around rounding etc. Just look at the mess they've created in the care industry around night shifts.

Don't get me started on HMRC, especially the "magic" of IR35 interpretation, if it's just you as an individual, you get pinned, if it's the BBC they will "negotiate a settlement"!

Michael carter has confirmed that in Wakey case it relates to payments to academy players for travelling time a rule we were unaware of and goes back 3 years. All have been paid up and we have been heavily fined. Wasn’t down to MC but as the employer the buck stops with him

I thought that Wakefield were the best run side in the league?

Clearly not.
