Something that is very close to home in this family at the moment……………….
Mitie, one of Britain’s biggest care providers called Mi-HomeCare, employs 6,000 home care workers looking after 10,000 elderly and infirm people in England and Wales.
It pays its chief executive Ruby McGregor-Smith £550,000 plus benefits and car allowance – a total package of about £1.5 million.
This is the head of the company that didn’t pay staff for the time they spent travelling between clients yet she gets a car allowance.
A third of its income comes rom the public purse. No wonder the union is angry about how firms like these operate.
