2003 Scrooge title awarded
The End Low Pay Campaign's annual Scrooge of the Year Competition received a record number of nominations.
There were obvious choices - overpaid MLAs, Shorts Management, the Civil Service. There were employers paying as little as £1 per hour.
But in the end, the award for 2003 went to the Millbrook Lodge Hotel in Ballynahinch, where staff reported wage rates of £2.50 an hour.
Congratulations to this establishment for coming out top - sorry bottom - in the low pay/exploitation charts.
