Brexit leaves catering equipment employees facing salary conundrum

KNUTSFORD, UNITED KINGDOM - JUNE 24:  A European Union flag, with a hole cut in the middle, flies at half-mast outside a home in Knutsford Cheshire after today's historic referendum on June 24, 2016 in Knutsford, United Kingdom.

Almost 60% of catering equipment executives admit to feeling uncertain about the impact that Britain’s impending exit from the European Union will have on their earnings power.

Asked what effect they expect Brexit to have on their salary prospects in 2017, some 59% of UK catering equipment professionals said they had no real feeling for whether it will enhance or lessen their chances of a pay rise, according to initial findings from the FEJ & Catering Insight Job Satisfaction Survey.

The research does suggest, however, that more people think it likely that Brexit will have negative repercussions for industry salaries.

31% of respondents said they think Brexit will dent the chances of their salaries increasing, while just 10% said it would improve their chances of a salary rise.

The indifference towards the impact of Brexit on salary growth comes after we revealed yesterday that two-thirds of catering equipment executives claims to be earning more than this time last year.

Full analysis of the FEJ & Catering Insight Job Satisfaction Survey will continue as the results come in and we are urging everybody to take part in order to create the best possible data.

The survey is completely anonymous and does not require any obligatory contact information to be filled in.

    Surely what is more worrying is internet traders selling at just above or even below trade prices! This has already made companies go out of business and created unemployment. A lot more will follow.
