    It's a secret, but if you were in Cardiff I'd PM you the details. We're not recruiting at the moment, however.

    I don't think footballers are overpaid - because essentially its a free market and they are perfect exampels of that

    I do think public service workers should have limited wages tho - i.e MPs - if you wanan be an MP do it for the good of the people etc etc but don;t turn around and say you coulda made 200k in your old job - why not stick to your odl job then?

    Equally as mentioned NHS bosses and council bosses - our council boss gets paid £200,000 - and he recently made cutbacks that could have paid for about 15 new staff on his single wage - again his 'excuse' was that he should earn what other executives of large organisations earn but he earns way less - well why not **** off to a private company then? I am not saying they shouldn;t be paid well but something like 75k is more appropriate - not 200k. Certainly not when front line staff have to be sacked.

    Like Thud said. Fat cats in the NHS. I say we get rid of them and those greedy dentists. Let's get those super smart geeks from India. Same quality but with a lower price and with a hilarious accent. Win win.

    The only people who are really make a living out of benefits are the fraudsters.

    directors of the NHS: nurses receive rubbish wages whilst the fat cats at the top are rolling in it.
    agreed, i know that from experiance of working for the NHS

    So this is more about who doesn't get paid enough for jobs we feel are more important than kicking a ball around and wearing some Nike.

    Cardiff Gate is far away. I live in Cathays and my job is in Riverside. It's a half hour walk as it is, more than far enough.

    Our one doesn't get paid a penny.

    (Original post by Davey21)
    MPs!!! Their pay is ridiculously high, and their holiday days they get is a joke, too!!
    I'd argue for the reverse: less MPs, but higher salaries in order to attract vaguely skilled people to the posts. £55,000 is not a lot for supposedly skilled and professional people.

    How can you say footballers are not overpaid? Where would be without teachers and nurses? Now, where would we be without footballers? What they do is unimportant and to pay them £100,000 a week, to (most of the time) play pretty badly, is criminal. That money could be used to let poor countries crawl out of debt, or to pay for researchers in labs to find cures for some horrible diseases. That would be far more worthwhile than it paying for some stuck up WAG to have lipo.

    and yeah, MPs don;t get payed that much. Although they do get alot of expenses.

    I can’t say I agree with you on this one

    There are those who scrounge off benefits… but then there are those who genuinely can’t work (because they are ill or what ever) and so are in desperate need of money. It is too general to say “people”... plus, some don't get hardly any money. The thresh hold is generally lower than the lowest-paid worker...
