    It's ridiculous tbh. TFL workers have better employment packages than most workers out there, and still act like some sort of abused victims of an unfair system.

    Imagine nurses, doctors, physios etc went on strike on every opportunity? I know that physiotherapist wages did not increase in line with inflation for at least 4-5 years, and I believe it's something similar with OTs.

    ****ing annoying bunch of ******s
    Yea but they do it because they're able to get away with it.

    Most people would happily take their jobs on those salaries/conditions but it's such a closed shop. They rarely advertise jobs for TFL since it gets snapped up internally. I think it's been years since they last advertise.

    Should just sack them all *grumbles*

    Why the **** are phone companies spending so much time/money on making phones water resistant? If you drop your phone in the toilet/sink then you're just clumsy.

    Why not make them less prone to breaking/shattering with the slightest touch?

    Oh that's right, because it's all a scam to rip you off!

    London Underground is exactly why the rightwing business lobby is so anti-Union but also looking at other area why we need to strengthen unions. There is a fine line between protecting your workers and ensuring a fair deal and abusing the power you have.

    The other point is that those who are well off/rich, don't spend everything they have as they like to save. So if you give a middle class person an extra £1000-5000, they will probably just squirrel it away.

    Whereas there are many more people on minimum wage, so even a small or decent increase, means when multiplied by the sheer number of people it impacts and that those people are more likely to spend it all = more money being spent/circulated which also aids the economy.
    It's not a nice life to live, you have the money but you are constantly afraid of spending it because of fearing poverty. I used to be very poor and have an irrational fear of being poor again.

    Anyone seen this?

    It's pretty limited in certain aspects but quite an interesting assessment on indicators of an individual's moral values.

    I don't think it indicates moral values tbh, a lot of the questions aren't given thought to and most will probably base their answers on instincts.

    Who to kill is a pretty weird way of judging morals 🤔

    Unless I'm missing something

    I would argue it does tell you a little about yourself morally.

    For instance, when both losses were equal, my most important deciding factor would be which person was "I the right". For instance I was more likely to save people who were crossing on the green man than ones who were crossing on the red man.

    So it does tell you a bit about moral values, although I agree there are some huge problems with it. Like you said, instinct may come in to it more than situational assessment, and it's obviously not representative of the real world. As a driver you're always gonna swerve...

    I took pretty much no notice of gender, fitness or profession - the only individual characteristic I accounted for was age and species. I think it's a very simplistic experiment on purpose but you can go further with it if you ask for a brief explanation following any decision.
