Mike Ashley has admitted paying Sports Direct employees below the minimum wage at a hearing in front of MPs. The company founder said that workers were paid less than the statutory minimum because of bottlenecks at security in an admission that could result in sanctions from HMRC. Ashley told Iain Wright MP, who chairs the Business, Innovation and Skills Select Committee, that workers were paid below the minimum wage for a "specific time". He said that security processes had since been improved to that "literally hundreds of people" can walk through the security line each minute.
