Ill break a pay slip down for you:This is one I actually had:
Gross Pay(hourly rate and commission): £972
Tax and N.I: 137.42
Uniform deduction: 25.00
Take home pay:£548.58
That is the true wage of probationary cabin crew at Ryanair,not the over zelious £1000 they advertise on WFI,Stjames,Cavos or Crewlink websites! Yoy might get paid £1000 before deductions but after deductions you will not.
That doesnt even take into account, feeding yourself for a month, rent for a month, GETTING TO WORK for a month!
I've seen crew eating cheap price noodles day in and day out because they cant actually afford to eat right. I've seen crew staying in squalled dumps without heating, without TV, without anything because they cant afford to live in a decent flat!
Some crew end up selling their posessions to cash converters or jewellery to pawn brokers just so they can survive for another month, I'm not joking John, I've seen it with my own two eyes. I even admit, I've bought things that crew have sold out of desperation!
But in the end its one huge vicious cycle with crew, not enough money to look after themselves, they get run down from lack of sleep,decent food etc. They get sick, they cant work,no money comes in,its gets worse, they get sacked....Just like that...everytime without fail!
People need to know that THIS(above) is RYANAIR, when you join, there is no silver lining, its not better then some shitty job in Poland, or Hungary. It puts you in debt, you disimprove your life, you destroy it!
Comments above are from Ryanair Probationary Cabin Crew.I have changed a wording ''or life in Hungary'' to, or Hungary as a vistitor did not like this wording.
