    The sooner we realise that money is a fraud and that there is no money - only debt - then the sooner we can free ourselves from this ridiculous system of covert slavery and start to live the lives we ALL deserve - not just the top 1 percent.

    Assuming that we don't though cos the media doesn't tell us to - then Duncan should badmouth Terry,or whatever he was called, to his boss, get him the sack, then child services could take Terry's babies away. Job done. Now lets all get back to arguing with each other about worthless pieces of paper and have no more on the subject.

    :silenced:
    I would not want you to be part of fraud. So send me all your money.:rotfl:

    Company's a bum (and an idiot) for fostering discontent.
    Duncan's a bum for grabbing the work.
    What about a nice bit of sharing and harmony!!!

    Why is Duncan a bum for 'grabbing' the work? And who says the company's fostering discontent??? :confused:

    hekll yes I would say, everyman for himself in tough times!! :)
    Date I decided to clear my debt: 03/12/08
    Debt started with: Loan - 2195, Credit Card - 1738, Interest free overdraft -500 = TOTAL - 4433
    Current Debt: Loan - 0, Credit Card 1 - 1346, Credit Card 2 - 906 Interest free overdraft -0 = TOTAL - 2252
  • Overtime should be shared fairly amongst workers, so next time it should be Theo's turn. Maybe Theo should let the company know he's interested in overtime when any's available. My housemate always lets his company know when he's available so that he can get his share of the extra time available.

    For consistency, can anyone who think Theo should undercut Duncan's pay please publish here what they do, how much they get paid and where they work?

    Then any readers can contact their employer and uncut them!

    I'm a stay-at-home mum, and if you can get anyone to do my job for less than the 20 quid a week I get from Child Benefit, please, please, PLEASE get them to call my employer when he wakes from his nap in about 15 mins. PS better wait til he's had his milk tho - he's a bit grumpy til then!

    ;)

    No I don't think he should try and undercut Duncan,he should have been quicker on the uptake if money is tight he would have been looking out for opportunities like overtime etc.:money:

    No he shouldn't the cheapskate!! He should wait until overtime is offered again and then he should also do it for triple time. If he undercuts this time, the company is unlikely to offer triple time again as he is prepared to do it for less.

    If money's tight he should go and get a better paid job or get a second one!!

    The point being missed here is - the company has no overtime policy. If it did then the overtime, as offered, would be at a standard rate depending on circumstances such as Weekday/Weekend etc.

    As it is, the company didn't offer it at triple time, the guy that got it negotiated that rate. So, if anyone else wants to negotiate a lower rate they're perfectly at liberty to do so - just like the first guy.

    Failing that, I would suggest they get an overtime policy and stop putting their employees at odds with one another thus causing friction in the workplace.

    The company I work for does - as long as I don't mind working on December 25th.
    Try saying "I have under-a-pound in my wallet" and listen to people react!
