The whole thing is madness. The bin men in Birmingham WERE overpaid however they do a hazzardous, dirty job that not everyone wants either. Whereas a dinner lady (apart from hot liquids) is working INDOORS, warm, no germs, no risk of being out on the road in all weathers picking up sharps etc accidently, pulling your back out.. etc etc.
So to demand EQUALITY is madness. Such are unions and activists down there.
My sis in law works there and its caused huge problems for everyone including WOMEN who had nothing to with the original dispute. Everyones jobs are now affected and potentially at risk. Thank you Unions, law firms and activists, well done.
