Staff spend £2,300 a year turning up for work

Cost of getting to and being at work reduces average wage by £2,300 per year

The costs associated with turning up for work have been found to effectively
reduce the average national wage by £2,300 per annum.

Research published today by YouGov, and sponsored by debit card group
Maestro, found that staff typically spend £120 extra a month on food, £50 on
travel and £35 on work clothes.

This effectively reduces the average national wage from £22,248 to £19,970
when all these costs have been deducted.

The survey found that the average worker also spends 16 days per year getting
ready for and travelling to work.
