Industrial action at Readings

I just read on Scoop that the CTU is supporting industrial action at Reading Cinemas in Wellington.

Firstly can I congratulate the CTU on protesting by handing out free popcorn. This is an excellent idea. I look forward to them handing out free cheeseburgers at McDonalds and free chicken at KFC also.

More seriously I wonder what the level of these “minimal wages” are at Reading. In my experience a lot of people like to work at cinemas as the hours are flexible, and you get to see lots of free movies. The job is almost totally unskilled (main requirement is a good attitude) so one doesn’t expect huge wages.

Anyway anyone out there know what Reading staff are paid?
