LONDON - Nov. 22, 2016 - PRLog -- Charities in the UK should have their charitable status removed if they pay any of their staff more than three times the national average wage, says the Ten Percent Campaign, a campaign group encouraging business to donate a percentage of their profits to charity and also highlight excessive charity pay.

"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. If you are a UK resident and want to voice your support of the campaign please visit
