Hi All
If like me you are a bit sick and tired of listening to all the 'Pie in the sky' election promises that fill my airwaves in the van while I roll along in the stop start traffic from job to job. I thought about a couple of things on the perspective from us 'Worker Ants'

The national careers service is the start, where would be young persons look to become a 'Fridge engineer' or any other trade.

Trainees can earn between 11,000 and 19,000 a year, depending on the stage of training. Newly-qualified workers may earn between 20,000 and 25,000 a year. Experienced workers with supervisory duties may earn from 26,000 to 35,000 a year.

That means we are earning as experienced engineers between 80 and 100 a day.
The average take home wage in London is 100 a day

There was the recent case of a Politician who resigned because his 90 000 salary before expenses and living allowances was too low to live on but he is a small fish see the link below.

All I can say is we are going to have to adjust our charging rates for certain people :rolleyes:

Unfortunately some, who have been hoping for a secure and bright future....simply give up.
Cast your preference and move on because nothing seems to change, no matter which side rules at the end of the day.
Chemi's post is absolutely accurate.
