P uses legal loophole to pay its workers hourly rate of £1.83
The Government is to introduce legislation in 2019, which will aim to ensure the national minimum wage (NMW) is paid to all maritime workers operating in UK internal waters as P&O came bottom in a league table of ferry operators, paying its foreign workers a basic hourly rate as low as £1.83, because the NMW does not apply on the high seas. The legislation will not however apply to workers operating on international routes from the UK.Link to article
