St Clair: Turn the lights back on!

It was great to attend the Junior Champs on the weekend at St Clair.
My highlight was not only when they turned the lights off during the last game, but then once they came on and the game finished.... they turned them straight off again. So much fun trying to get out with no lights on.

Such a disgrace. Seeing elderly people walking through with canes and walkers.
Hearing the staff behind the counter telling them they wont turn the lights back on for their family to be able to see, and to call tomorrow to complain about it.

Seriously.... What the hell was going on???
Did nobody pay the electricity bill?

Whilst I think it's a bit of an exaggeration about all the pensioners at the games resembling an Andre Rieu concert, there is an element of occupational health and safety, but then again those workers wouldn't be getting paid for people dawdling and exchanging scone recipes.

You get paid until the job is finished. If the scone people take 1/2hr to walk out safely, you FRIKKIN STAY retard!

Unless BSA only paid up to a certain time. They don't work for BSA, BSA hire the venue at a set price. The downside of these new venues being run by mulitsport private companies.

As written above, most places don't pay their employees extra. There shift finish is that. Trying to argue with supervisors they had to stay for an extra half hour while the pensioners shuffled from their seats across the court is just dumb, why aren't they leaving immediately after game, as with everyone.

Isn't St Clares a community centre? Supervisors may have finished the shift but the centre would still have been open

St Clair is usually shut by that time on a Sunday, unless a competition is keeping the venue open. But yes sometimes you have to pay past when your competition might finish if you don't want ot be rushed out. Got to feel for the casual staff being paid peanuts too, if they are paid to work to 6pm, why should they keep it open and stay to 630pm for free?

Don't work that way, supervisor will want to know why you didn't have everyone gone by set finishing time. Both parties agreed to hire of courts till a certain time, organisation has given price which includes staff wages. It's call economics, look it up mate.

No need to look up anything mate. It's called commonsense as Shayno said.
