I wonder, Cryrst, if you would ever support any strike under any circumstances.

Please don't think I'm being aggressively antagonistic. It's not that but simply a desire to know.

He would if sir keir was pm I would hazard a guess! Thing is, he"s happy to take a good hourly rate and working conditions due to union negotiations in the past, including EU regs that no doubt still exist , like sick pay and holiday pay- but unions? Just a bunch of commies to cryrst!

MPs took a 10% pay rise on top of expenses, and the government introduced the bankers million pounds bonus"s again a month ago, maybe more
Start at the top and then worry about the grafters at the bottom keeping up!

The Govt don't pay bank bonuses , banks do CP.

You can change your bank to a mutual or building society if you can find one.

I find it odd that people lose their sh1t over bank bonuses but don't say a word about the obscene amounts that , oh let me see, footballers are paid.

 


When the veneer of civility cracks and the abuse starts....sit back, smile and enjoy a point at Anfield

He reaching for the pocket....and it's a long overdue yellow

I see workers at my college taking home just 1K a month for a full week and they have rent to pay, food, bills.

That works out at a bit over 3 per hour so can't be right

That's take home.

I was doing their job 10 yrs ago and used to take home about 950 a month. Bearing in mind in the 10 years since, pay rises have never been over 1.5%, that figure would be about right. Maybe 1.2K tops.

That's teaching assistants.

Vested interest in Hong Kong mate? They changed the rules allowing the banks to pay the bonus I believe only a couple of months ago, maybe the government owned banks? To be fair I have criticised the obscene money in sport for years, only to get shot down on here by the "you"re only jealous- original argument"!

I can't speak for Cryst, but as far as I'm concerned, refusing to work as a means to force a pay rise would never get my support. Strikes always seem futile to me.

I like what the Japanese railway workers do to put pressure on their bosses. They simply continue to operate an extremely punctual and efficient service, but let passengers travel without charging them. That's the way to do it.

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.

Yeah, I think they must be 'living wage' of 9.50 an hour. Sorry.

Still bloody pitiful for the job they do and how valuable they are to the students at my college.

You couldn"t make it up! Of course some will argue- are there no night shifts going in factories? Are there no out of hours cleaning jobs in hospitals? Could they get another 15 a week by getting up a couple of hours earlier and doing a paper round? Are they the same people who get take aways? smoke? drink the odd glass of wine?

When you compare to the Gov of bank of englands 650k, asking us not to go for big pay rises, it makes you think!

That"s illegal over here! They would have done it Mick Lynch said but alas the law would be on them asap!
