    Will never set foot inside a wetherspoon pub if I can help it. That owner treated his staff like **** at the start of the covid crisis.

    He really didnít. The press twisted the whole thing, I have spoken to several of his staff at different places and they all say the same.

    Iíve also spoken to some staff who have some appealing stories of their working conditions.

    How appealing? Is it worth applying for a job?

    I wouldn't go into one of those pubs if the beer was free.
    Buy nothing online unless you check for free cashback here first. I've already earned £2,389.68!

    I really don't like Tim Martin at all. However people need to remember at the time of the 1st lockdown the furlough scheme wasn't announced until very, very late in the day. He wasn't the only business owner who was set to make a lot of people redundant and Wetherspoons certainly weren't the only pub group. When furlough was announced most retained their staff. With all the restrictions on trade the hospitality industry, supply chain and other reliant industries are all making redundancies, we lost 20% of our workforce at my work last week and the rest are on reduced hours. My boss isn't a monster, he's doing what he needs to do so we have a business at this time next year. I accept that is of little consolation to those who lost their jobs and it's not much comfort to me as I contemplate making savings where I can.

    I wouldn't actively choose to go to a Wetherspoons because they are generally soulless caverns. I also don't like Martins politics and I've heard they aren't a great company to work for. His comments at the beginning of March were cold but ultimately he retained his staff and they were paid on time and at the 80% rate.

    I'm just trying to give our England based fans a heads up, hopefully it will be of benefit to some.

    Maybe so, but my response was in regard to the first lockdown and their subsequent payment and retention on the furlough scheme where they were treated as fairly as everyone else.

    You know what you're getting with spoons; cheap drinks, especially outside of Edinburgh. The gin range is quite decent and they tend to do a decent pizza.
