UK Government creates new bill to ensure all tips go to staff
In a move backed by UKHospitality, the government has introduced a new law that will mean all tips should now be going to hospitality workers and not the businesses they work for. This new law hopes to make tip sharing easier, however, many workers would suggest that rather than changing tipping laws, the UK should work to provide more significant aid to the hospitality industry and its workers. You can read the government's official legislature on the new tipping bill here.
Ingredient substitutes to keep costs low
Costs are continuing to soar in the UK as the cost of living crisis continues on well into the summer, with no sign of additional help or schemes coming from the government. We at Brigad have put together a helpful guide to help you save money and substitute cheaper ingredients to keep costs down so that you can have more fun in the kitchen.
