Everton to pay directly engaged matchday and non-matchday casual workers during coronavirus shutdown
Everton FC and Everton in the Community have committed to paying all directly engaged matchday and non-matchday casual workers unable to work due to the coronavirus crisis.
All the club's directly engaged matchday workers will be paid for the remainder of the Premier League season based on their existing terms of engagement and frequency of work previously undertaken. Casual matchday workers will also be paid for any rescheduled fixtures they work when the season resumes.
Non-matchday casual workers, directly engaged by the club, will be paid for at least the next month based on their existing terms of engagement and frequency of work previously undertaken. This will continue to be reviewed on an ongoing basis.
Matchday and non-matchday casual workers are an integral part of the Everton Family, and Everton are committed to ensuring that nobody engaged by the club is disadvantaged financially at this challenging time.
The club is also encouraging its partners and suppliers to follow the Club's lead in paying casual workers during this time.
This move is part of Everton's wider commitment to the ‘C-19 Business Pledge' — a national scheme led by former Cabinet minister, Rt Hon Justine Greening, encouraging businesses to help their staff, customers and community through the coronavirus crisis and the UK into recovery.
All casual staff members across Everton, Everton Women and Everton in the Community will be contacted by the club in the next 10 days to finalise arrangements.

In comparison, look at Wren Kitchens – owned by a billionaire family and today sacked most of their workers despite the Govt 80% scheme! Or Sports Direct...

I know a couple of casual workers who rely on that little bit extra and they will be breathing a huge sigh of relief. One of them (an avid young blue) doubles up and works over the park on their match days as well. I would like to think Liverpool and the rest of the Premier League clubs are doing the right thing too.
These are worrying times. We would all love to wrap our families in a cloak of immunity, but we can't. Every gesture, no matter how small, is to be acknowledged and appreciated.
It's not just these small gestures that will get us through this. It's the appreciation of them too.

Sir John Mac, stay away too many profanities

Be sure to turn the volume on. The audio is what makes it so funny.

So DBB and the board, credit where it's due. You've done the right thing here.

Also, I have reassessed my views on players taking a pay cut. Where is the guarantee from the clubs that they won't just keep the savings? Players do a lot which largely goes unnoticed.
As has been said over the past few days, there are a lot of millionaires and billionaires in this country. Maybe some should cough up their unpaid taxes.

I know that Soxedo have Ascot as one of its clients, I wonder how many other Premier League clubs use them?

I'd like to say they are made up, but working and socialising with some of these people, I actually think they are genuine comments!

I searched in vain for a mention of Everton In The City or Prince Rupert's Tower. Another opportunity for good publicity on the world stage gone begging?
Despite recent criticism directed at the RS their community work featured prominently.
