General (General discussion, talk about anything.)
I've been reading in the Mirror today how the haulage driver shortage has been engineered by BP and the media, supported by the intellectually challenged who panic buy, and how infectious that is.
The problem is drivers rates of pay and now the increase in NI which has upset BP.
One driver told his story of how he was being paid £9 per hour and his Hungarian counterpart was being paid £8.
One driver said he asked for a pay rise, was sacked, and they brought in an East European. Another driver was told if he didn't like the job, go and work in Hungary.
The rise in NI rates has caused problems across these private industries and BP particularly who can spend £millions drilling holes in Mohammed's country and the middle of the sea, but like to pay peanuts. Even fatty has said they need to pay a living wage.
Worth a read.
