17p and hour??
can you imagine any other job with the hours we do, having such a low wage?
then we get called scroungers and told we should put up and shut up.

17 p ! Can't you knit your own SN gear ? Don't you feel guilty that there are fewer bombs in Iraq because you are greedily syphoning off such vast sums !!!

I'm soo jealous of your ££££.... because I have an understanding boss & have managed to hang on to my job by swapping to school hours, taking a pay cut & a demotion i don't qualify for that extra 17p per hour!

So other than when he is at school & his lovely TA is caring for him I do it for free.

But seriously, I'm nackered most of the time,... you lot all know how knackering it is with no sleep & all that, but because the carers is such a pittance if i packed up work my mortgage would not get paid!

& I hope you are all saving some of your CA 7 not frittering it all away...spa weekend...hair & nails!!
