    Sit on UKL all day?

    I'm in an investment bank. In fairness it changes - if I have not much on and leave at 5 or so then it works out at ~£14/hr. If there's deadlines and I'm up working until 4am it works out as less than nearly everyone on this thread!

    Some people say this, but I can't understand why some people think this, is it a particularly English trait?

    I don't think piggy was showing off, just answering the question.

    Spent 9 months temping for peanuts before getting my current job (rounded it up to a yr for simplicities sake - I've only really been in this job for 2 1/2 yrs - the first payrise to £18.6 was after 7 months)

    The first one was a job change, the second inflation related, the third inlation related + an increment and the upcoming one is because my job has been regraded to a higher pay scale

    Oh and I'm brilliant

    Did I mention I get 36 days holiday + bank holidays too :cool:

    That was necessary, in order to bring PQ above the breadline mate.

    Just a change from temping and being grossly underpaid (I was doing the job of TWO people who were getting £14k for a paltry £11) I exageratted on my application form for my current job and added in a retention bonus* plus a bunch of overtime that bumped it up to £14 so they wouldn't rule me out for a £17k job because I was earning too little at the time.

    *which I didn't claim on - I'd rather have a £6k payrise than a hundred quid or so for doing another months work for peanuts.
