Since working for Blackburn Council i have realised why they're failing the public. The management waste valuable money of creating jobs for their friends. I witnessed excellent workers being left on zero hour contracts for 2 -3 years. With no holidays and company benefits. They used one employee as a public relations figure, using her video's and photo's to promote the company in a good light. All along that employee was being used and abused on a zero hour contract. When the employee tried to get a full time contract, management would reject her to give their friends jobs. Then they would have to waste the tax payers money to train their friends up because they never had the right qualifications in the first place. Many of times the council would employ people that can't drive wagons then waste money training them to drive wagons, even though they have zero hour drivers that are already fully capable of doing the job. Blackburn Council should be a bit more careful when wasting tac payers money. We might be able to fix the roads and clean up the town a bit then.
Zero hour contracts, No overtime pay, No holiday, Not much diversity, Hard work isn't appreciated, Bad management
