    Yes. Most people are paid above the minimum wage.

    How we know this

  • Most people don’t get sick pay

    No. Most people don’t get proper sick pay.

    How we know this

    100% of people say they wouldn’t get paid if they were sick but scheduled to work.

    Why this matters

    Everyone gets sick sometimes. You should be able to take time off without worrying.

    At a good job you should still get paid if you’re scheduled to work but can’t due to sickness. Your contract should say how many sick days you can take each year.

    This is more than the legal minimum, which says you should only get paid if you are unwell for 4 full days. See Citizens Advice for more details.

    Why this matters

    At a good job, you shouldn’t have to worry about getting enough hours each week.
