YOU LAZY BAR STEWARDS
Snowflake pub staff refuse to work after dark
SNOWFLAKES are turning their noses up at late-night bar work fearing it will upset their sleep.
One club boss says such feeble attitudes now threaten the whole night bar industry.
A NIGHTCLUB boss says that snowflakes who refuse latenight bar work are threatening the industry.
Many young adults are turning down lucrative pub, bar and club jobs because they do not want to ruin their sleep.
Club manager Ken Wright said he struggles to hire staff. He said: “I am constantly bewildered at the thought process of graduates seeking work behind or in front of a busy bar, open seven days a week until 3am, who consider being here beyond 11pm, particularly at the weekend, a ridiculous proposition.”
Mr Wright, who runs the Phoenix Artist Club in London’s West End added: “Flexible rostering, zero hours, part-time, full-time, weekends only, school hours, no late nights, the list of ‘wants’ by staff and trendy working styles in this industry will be the death of us.”
The days of students and college-leavers being prepared to work long, unsociable shifts are now gone, Mr Wright said. He added: “Potential employees, particularly those new to the industry, arrive wearing rosetinted spectacles, naively presuming that no weekend work will be necessary.” Figures show the UK clubbing industry in freefall.
