House Price Crash Forum

I send two tweets to Shelter:

 

1) About BTL/A24

 

Will @Shelter speak out in favour of the British people and demand @PHammondMP dismantle the odious BTL "economy" and keep #A24 ?

2) About this:

Guess which one they've replied to ?

 @HousePriceMania ...roles at comparable organisations, we can attract and keep the highly skilled and committed staff Shelter needs.

 @HousePriceMania We're very transparent about our executive team’s salaries and how they are set. By paying salaries that match similar...
 

 

I am starting to take a real dislike to UK charity's.

 

I wonder how many at Shelter have BTLs.

looking at the Shelter photo it appears the poor in the 1960s had more to be cheerful about than the poor today and I expect that's right...many would soon be given free houses which policy will engineer to rocket in value and they now let out to some young person or immigrant and they are sitting pretty...

Best part of £1M on salarys for 12 people.

How many would that house ?

They're a campaign group. Renters need a counterbalance to the landlord clowns.

Look at P118, they hate shelter.

Enemy of my enemy is my friend.

Massive pay for charities is one of my bugbears but £130k for a Chief Exec of an organisation employing over 1300 people doesn't strike me as ridiculous.

Third sector pay should not be comparable to the private sector. Often the people are low calibre coming from other charities, NGOs and the public sector. Shelter (the charity) has no direct competition so all they have to do is sit back and wait for the gifts and legacies to roll in. Quite what they do with their time I do not know but definitely not worth their pay.

I think most people think assume charity staff are volunteers, the info on these salaries would shock vast majority of people.

If the Chief Exec of Shelter is doing the work and is worth every £1 of his or her salary then surely the charity should have plenty of clout with the Government. Meaning less homelessness and better housing options.

I often tell people of these charity salary's...people are angry as when they see it in black and white.

 

Some ate being run as businesses using much of the donations to advertise for more donations 

 

Some of the big charity's pat 500K.

Its all part of this horrific selfish spiv economy we now have.

 

Repellent in every way.

it's probably housing 12 families. 

Not sure why you would want to attack Shelter, it's charitable status, or it's board.

Sort of thing landlords might do......

Oh come on its small beer, I mean seriously shelter have one person who earns as much as me. I'm much more annoyed with them for not being vocally onside as to the real underlying problem of houses simple being too expensive.

I think you're missing the point.

I tweeted them on BTL, ignored.

I tweeted them on this...they defended themselves.

They're fighting the wrong battle.

+ IT'S A ****ING CHARITY

In which case, there would be very few charities out there.

I think you're getting confused here. The work these people put in - usually on a full-time basis - is not a donation. The money you send them is, If you don't like the overhead, you can always give money directly to people in need in your neighborhood.

I was offered a job at Macmillan when I was moving to UK and I the reason I rejected was I thought I'd have a moral dilemma in any future payrise negotiations, but I have no problem with other people getting paid for honest work.

I've posted this elsewhere but the CEO of UNICEF in America earns $500'000.. straight from the pockets of donations.. charities they are not.. give them 100, they take 20 and pass it on for the next person to take a cut.. I could do that.. send me money people I guarantee I will pass most of it on.. ?
