We all put a value on events both celebrations and commemorations. The cost of funerals in the UK will vary. On average a good funeral, all in, can be comfortably completed for less that £5000. So £10,000,000 is a lot of money that could do a lot of things for a lot of people. (That would be 2000 funerals by the way)
If you think about the average wage of many professions many people could be employed for £10 million. As the minimum wage is £6.19 and if the average amount of hours worked are 37 then the weekly wage is £229.03 or £11,909.56 per year, PA. So, for example, for £10,000,000 we could create 833 band 2 posts in the NHS.
For younger people the minimum wage is lower at £4.98. So for the £10 million we could get 1040 18-20 year old off the dole. or provide jobs for 1412 16-17 year olds. Amazingly this could also create over 2000 apprenticeships.
Consider the following, with £10 million we could create…
100 qualified doctors
345 trainee doctors
455 social workers
Wherever you look there are a lot of jobs that could be created but there are others things that could be done…around 2000 hip replacements…around 5000 cataract replacements,
Do you get the idea?
The people that spend the public purse do so with impunity and without recourse the the owners of the money, the general public. We have the opportunity once every five years to express our view to those that hold power. Perhaps you might consider this as you decide what you would do with £10,000,000.00.
Take care, be happy
