It’s like an organisation campaigning to highlight the effects of living in poverty paying their workers £10 a day…it’s a free ride, when you’ve already paid…
Thanks to the reader who brought this cracker to our attention, RESTLESS DEVELOPMENT, WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?
I just wanted to point out that Restless Development want to hire an intern for their ‘Live Below the Line’ campaign which challenges people to live on £1 a day. They will pay this intern only £10 a day for lunch and travel expenses ironically… Someone needs to tell Restless Development that the ‘line’ is relative.
