    Seen this and just had to reply...

    Prison Officer for Sodexo: 17.5k
    Based on 45-50 hours per week. (works out to be just above minimum wage at like 8.00p/h)
    Benefits aren't the best.

    Don't get paid near enough for what we do, very dangerous job and life threatening at times. But yeah I choose to do it so can't say much. Unions have been fighting for wage rises within the prison sector for the last 8 years, although they did receive a 350 wage rise for 2016. Before it was 17.2k

    pre or post tax salary?
    I am constantly dreaming of retirement and financial independence.
    I would like to have enough money to open an animal farm and a charity vegetarian restaurant.
    I am good with savings, but not investments. I am a keen learner, but can be disappointed by my laziness.
