Ultimatum | Shell workers told 'go see Trump or don't get paid'

Shell workers told 'go see Trump or don't get paid'

Employees or workers get paid by their employer for doing a specific job. Their job expectations and role responsibilities are outlined in their contract of employment and they will be paid accordingly for the work that they do.

Yet, Shell union workers were allegedly given an ultimatum: either turn up to President Donald Trump’s speech or miss out on a day’s pay – Indy100 reported. Whilst their attendance to the speech wasn’t compulsory, it was mandatory in order for the workers to receive the day’s pay, otherwise they were required to take the day off unpaid.
