Charity Boss Salaries are Unethical says Campaign
New campaign launched to end the practice of excessively high salaries in the UK charity sector.
"Why should a pensioner on less than £150 a week give £5 to a charity, completely unaware that the charity pays its' chief executive £200,000?" argues Jonathan Fagan, Trustee of the Ten Percent Foundation, a charitable trust linked to Ten-Percent Legal Recruitment, a company donating 10% of its annual profits to charity. "There are many charities across the UK paying in excess of three times the national average wage. We think this practice should end."
The Ten Percent Campaign has petitioned the UK Parliament to enact legislation to ensure that charities lose their charitable status if they pay any member of staff more than three times the national average.
