Let us know what area you are looking for and maybe we can help you find another job which enables you to get to see Fev on Sundays.

If there are any jobs going in our area let me know. My grandson has been to Aussie and back looking for permanent work. He gets a part time job now and then in the building trade and is also qualified as a personal fitness trainer. He watches Rovers when he can. I was talking to a bloke the other day who had lost his job and he said that the job situation would be a lot better if a law was past that all employees should be paid the statuary mimimum wage. This would stop immigrating cheap labour. God knows what next year will bring when all the poor of Eastern Europe are allowed in. Chaos will surely abound.

The statutory minimum wage or at least the statutory minimum wage ? :mellow:

Had just got back from holiday. Bloody frozen and tired out from travelling. Just wanted to help our kid, if not I would have waited. If you are not careful I will put a spell on you. Then you will be a mini Griff.

Just wondered if you were advocating enforcement of existing legislation or a reduction in pay for well paid folk.

Nothing sinister in it at all.

Kick these employment agencies into touch. Like leeches feeding off humanity.

A fair few companies don't like to do their own recruitment nowadays though, too much of a minefield for potential claims for discrimination of one sort or another. They prefer to leave it to experts, who can carry the can in the case of a claim. Much like subcontracting for any other part of business.

Agreed, boss of an agency rolls up in a BMW to talk to workers who can't afford to feed their family because of an 'admin error' which is 'out of their hands'. ####.
