Letter: Pity the barman

Sir: In the debate about extending drinking hours I have seen no mention of the poor bar staff.

My son was a barman for five years. When time was called for 11 o'clock, he was often there until 12 or 12.30 clearing and washing up , all for pounds 3-pounds 3.50 an hour. Nobody chooses to be a barman as a career. Please spare a thought for these people working at unsocial hours (social to you), including bank holidays and Christmas Day, for small recompense.
