To pay the latest NLW BQ gave Staff a 2% pay rise, then took 25p an hour off our location allowance so we are all actually worse off for the second year after BQ cut  pay by over £2000 last year to pay the NLW. The CEO and directors all kept their bonuses and received pay rises.

Another foreign Ceo they just erode the pay and benefits for the lowest paid BQ workers while taking obscene salaries for themselves.
