"We also have serious concerns about the contravention of employment law with intelligence suggesting some of these young people are being paid far less than the minimum wage and, in some cases, may be working illegally.
"All our staff are aged 16 or over and are paid at or above the minimum wage."
If however, the sandwich board carriers are working legitimately, then who is Coun Collins to stop them?

The city council says it is gathering intelligence on all forms of "human advertising" and has sought legal advice.
Dominos is coming in for all the publicity because they are the biggest 'user' of this type of advertising. I don't think Dominos is being singled out here and if they are above board, then it's OK. Put simply, any human being used as a billboard should have their employer under scrutiny. There does seem to be evidence that people are being 'shipped' into the city for the purpose. There are some dubious people out there luring foreign workers in. We must remember that a pittance here is equivalent to a good wage in some countries and some gang leaders are making a killing it's also happening in Agriculture.

I beleive the NMW is way too low already. It should be designed to enable someone to work without their wage having to be topped up by benefits such as tax credits. I resent my taxes being used to subsidise the wage bill of employers. The NMW does not encourage people to work when they can get almost as much on benefit.

A spokeswoman said: "It is a great way to get our advertising messages across to our customers, and our employees and some of our franchisees love being out of the store doing something different.
If people are offended by the sight of sandwich boards or think it demeaning, then don't buy a dominos pizza, but don't stop someone from trying to earn an honest crust.
The 'elf and safety "problem" is the excuse used by bureaucrats when they can't come up with a rational argument. If a sandwich board Nike Air Max Unique Style
