ten years ago i graduated from university with an art degree.
i was earning a good £1 or more above the uk national minimum wage.
now i am earning 7 pence above the uk national minimum wage.
the jobs have got worse:
i used to be able to sit, now i must stand.
i used to get one half hour break and two 10 minute breaks.
now i get one half hour break.
last year i got 2 five minute breaks and 2 twenty minute breaks.
now i get one half hour break.
last year i was paid for breaks.
this year i am not.
last year i was paid shift allowance.
this year i am not.
similar job similar company similar industry but different. i thought
it was bad last year.
down down down down.
at least i can look forward to october and the national minimum wage
increase. increases above what i'm earning. i suspect i won't be
earning more than the minimum wage then.
filling the world with plastic crap, that's something to be proud of.
