  1. In the early 2000's loads of print contracts went to Poland as they were working for the equivalent of something like £15k for the same job we were getting paid £35k for. A lot of the work ended up coming back to the UK as the transport costs began to outweigh the benefit of lower wage costs. I imagine a similar scenario may be at play here and in reality will be nothing to do with Brexit. I have to work crappy hours due to the nature of what's being produced and today it really is a case of 'don't like it? There's the door'. I'll guarantee this: if they laid off everyone at Nestle tomorrow, and reduced the wages by £5k , there would still be a queue of people applying for a job.
  2. It is though even if they are doing it for their own benefit. Factories are largely becoming 24/7 operations these days due to production demands or lean management... Whatever, and you can't run them Mon-Fri 9-5....I should know, I've done it long enough.
  3. Its inevitable in this day and age though. We all want 24/7 everything but never appreciate someone has to work to make that happen.
  4. I get what you mean but its not even necessarily big companies who can waste time when it comes to paying up. There's numerous things they can (and do) do to delay payment.
  5. Then everybody's happy. Quite fitting that Trojan likes this as he too is fond of accusing people of celebrating far right things, like Jo Cox's murder. You can go on ignore with him.
  6. You don't necessarily need more people though. As I've possibly mentioned my Mrs works in this area and could get a boatload more money collected if companies were not allowed to ###### about and play games.
  7. That's much easier said than done, the amount of evading businesses can (legally) do is ridiculous. They usually have to pay in the end but it's often a long process.
  8. Look, I don't know or care who you are so your opinion means absolutely nothing to me, although you appear to hold yourself in high regard as some sort of fount of knowledge. I don't rant about anything, I offer my take on stuff based on my actual experiences in life and nothing else. Maybe you could come back when you're old enough to actually vote? All the best son. XXX
  9. So if its 'only 4 days' why bother with it? It's also 4 days x a lot of people. That's either a lot of money, which can be found or a lot of more tired people. Not ideal in a life or death scenario
  10. After many years of doing various shifts and rarely getting any BHs, I'm actually trying to get a job that's Mon-Fri, normal ish hours, so I'd quite like to get some actually.
  11. This accusation is possibly the reason others feel reluctant to join in. There shouldn't be any problem with being proud to be English. And I should know as I'm mostly Irish
  12. Why is it right wing to want that? It's common in many countries.
  13. That was a question on The Chase recently.
  14. I don't get any bank holidays except Xmas day and New Years day, and i often end up working that night anyway.
  15. That sounds great but.... Who covers the holidays? Agency? Lot of cost there. Fellow workers? That means you're obliged to cover potentially as many weeks as you get in leave (as is my situation) so in that case do you actually get any holidays? Not cover leave? Then what? Let patients wait?
