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.
