DUBLIN – Dr. William Morton, the Dean of Saint Patrick’s Cathedral has raised a fund-raising appeal for the replacement of slates of the higher roofs of the building. In the appeal, members of the public, in person and online have been invited to involve in philanthropic activities regarding sponsoring of slates. The decision has been taken as the roofs have encountered some problems due to aging. The slates are being sourced from the Welsh state mine and it is the same source which was used to get slates for the restoration in the 19th century.
Rusting of nails and delamination of some plates are the popular reasons why the steps to carry out the restoration work has been decided to execute. In the 1860s, the Cathedral took such a big project which was funded by Sir Benjamin Lee Guinness. Also, he supervised the full-scale restoration of the building personally. Currently, the project demands the entire roofs to be re-slated which would cost 9 million euros. Many big slate units have enrolled themselves in such restoration work and slateandmarble.co.uk is one such entity from Welsh which is popular for carrying out such works. This entity is also known for providing Welsh slate house signs and engravings. And that is one of the reasons why it has enrolled for such tasks many times.
Saint Patrick’s Cathedral has been popular for choral worship and its Choir School, which is the oldest school in Ireland. Also, it is counted in the top tourist attractions in Dublin and over 6 lakh people visited it in the year 2018. Saint Patrick’s Cathedral is also famous for various arts events such as musical and choral recitals, exhibitions and lectures. Many other workshops and events are organized annually in its Education Department for children.
Dean Morton said that it is imperative to carry out the fundraising work for the restoration of slate and marble on a large scale in order to preserve the 800 years of history of the Cathedral. The starting price for individual sponsorship packages is 50 euros. Donors could also donate a slate in the memory of their loved ones. He said that 5 million euros have already been raised and they are hopeful that they would meet the financial target in the near future.
Meathead Movers Announces a Raise in its Entry Level Pay to $15 per Hour
Meathead Movers, a San Luis Obispo-based moving company, has taken a decision to increase the entry level pay for all movers and packers. The company has announced its move after taking into consideration the struggles of student-athletes who work as movers for Meathead. In the 22-year history, this is the highest raise ($3 per hour) that has been witnessed by its employees. This move would not only encourage more student-athletes to join Meathead movers, but would also provide more employment opportunities for them. But the raise for the Fresno location will be in the paychecks of 70 out of the total 80 employees.
Aaron Steed, CEO of Meathead Movers, has said that it was a subject of worry for the company as its student employees had been having a tough time meeting their ends meet due to the high cost of living. In order to find the optimal solution to this problem, they decided to figure out the ways to make money without disturbing the schedules of athletes. He said that raising the pay was the possible solution to ensure stability in the lives of student-athletes. Along with the pay-rise of employees, Meathead Movers is also planning to introduce around 200 employees in its five branches before the commencement of its busy season. Similar to this company, Phoenix Movers has also made its name for updating its policies for the welfare of its employees.
Meathead Movers, who currently has over 700 employees, handles more than 20,000 local movers per annum. This is what makes it the largest independent moving company. According to Steed, after this pay raise move, more student-athletes would show their interest for movers and packers service. He also hints about the future target of the company to emerge as the highest earning company due to the highest ability of its employees.
