I don't think the money was the issue I raised. I also don't think that money was the reason for the recent industrial action.
If you took on a job, say, peeling potatoes, and you were expected to peel 6 sacks a day and then you could go home. In return for that you were paid £50. You accept the low pay, because if you get the spud peeling done quickly then your time's your own.
One day, the bosses decide they're not making enough money, so they tell you that you are now expected to peel 12 sacks of spuds a day, with no increase in pay. So now you don't get the benefit of making time for yourself, and you don't get any more money.
I guess you would be fine with that ? If not, then *you're* a workshy bastard.
Not to mention the fact that there was a legal agreement between bosses and workers that specifically limited the spud peeling to 6 sacks/day.
It doesn't matter whether the wage is £50/day or £1000/day. What counts is the change in the agreed conditions, applied unilaterally by one party.
I bet you're not queueing to sign up to be a postal worker though. Too much like hard work, and definitely not fitting for a graduate. You'd much rather take it out on society by sitting in an office doing fuck all all day and bitching about your sense of grievance. Oh yeah, why do office workers command such a low pay scale ? Could it be because they're UNSKILLED ?
