I turn 22 in September, I've been working since 17 as I dropped out of college due to noit recieving any finacial help..
5 jobs and two vocational qualifications later (two apprenticeships later) The Birmingham Chamber Of Commerce offer me the full time position on £13,
840 per annum..
Disgusted doesn't describe how robbed I feel right now.
After living on friends setee's for the last 5 years, i was looking forward to being able to afford my own small little place. Looks like I got my
hopes up for no reason.
Call it £1000 per month after tax.
A small flat will cost me £450 per month.
Mandatory exspences and bills cost me a futher £100.
That leaves £450 to cover utility bills, food, clothing, medical bills and err.... Well I guess i won't be driving any time soon, or hitting a sunny
Er.... Is this just me, or is anyone else thinking "What the # am I working for?!?!".
To add salt to the wounds, I've been training a new member of staff who works on the side and was officially unemployed for two years prior to gaining
this current position.
I have more brain cells than him, so to speak, why the hell is he picking up £22,000 per annum, on top of his ILLEGAL part time work?!
More age discrimination.
This country, England, makes me sick!!
