Hello Bex....

I don't get nuffink

I work for "Birthdays" (part of the Clinton Cards group) we get 25% off all Birthdays stock and at Clinton Cards too, apart from any sale stock then our discount is reduced to 10%, we also are a franchise for Thorntons so get 10% off Thorntons.

I work for the local council in a school - no discounts I used to work for Novatech and we got almost anything at 'cost' price - was a nice little extra

Goldsmiths the jeweller - I get 30%, management get 35%. Plus occasionally we are allowed to get stuff at cost price.... ridiculous discounts lol

If you live in Wales you get free prescriptlions regardless of working or not

John Lewis is generous at 25% and the New Look at 50%,I bet they like you to wear their clothes while at work too,I got the impression of that when I did work exp for them and I went to a trainee interview later on.Nope I didn't get the placement in end,but tbh I wasn't that keen on working there.

I work for the Council and i get jack siht.
I do however pay a third of my salary for other people to have nice discounts on rent, council tax and other lovely things.

Yeah its supposed to be as you wear there clothes at work (free advertising I suppose) but she works at the Stockport branch and they all wear what they want from any shop.

Come off it you love the fact that your paying for them to have a good life and you must be happy in the knowledge they are breeding for the next generation of scroungers with their 10 children. Who in turn will knock out another 10 each and so the cycle goes on

You're right, every time I get my hugely disappointing paycheck, the knowledge of the happiness i bring to others brings tears to my eyes.

Well, something brings tears to my eyes.

I work in Engineering, I don't get anything.
Although, I get to make and fix things using all the work gear!
Good for little things like sharpening lawnmower blades etc. and fixing the car!

I think its happiness knowing your doing the right thing....
I also love ALL tax (especially fuel) its good to know we can fund our governments projects of throwing money at projects 'for a laugh', donating to countries (who in 20 years time will try and bomb us) and so we can fight wars with the enemy that live thousands of miles away so we can get oil,...which in turn we can pay more tax for....
Makes you proud to be British

Oh yes, big fan of fuel tax. It was far too cheap back when it was 85p a litre. I much prefer £1.15.

It's that lovely Gordon Brown and his merry men. Gotta love him.

Seriously though, I'm 24 and I'm in danger of becoming a Tory, I never thought this possible.

Yes -I think that might be going a little far seeing as the BNP are insane racists, but I agree we need a harsher alternative to Labour - basically a party who don't reward people for being lazy and having dozens of children, and don't let thousands of immigrants into the country without being more selective about their skills.

Lovely idea but I'm not sure I have enough money to start a political party - the government is stealing it all!

Don't get anything now. Used to get 10% off when i worked for PC World (Also gave you 10% off in Currys).

Don't miss it though as i am on considerably better wages now i have graduated and got a real job than the **** minimum wage DSG payed! :giggle:

I'm in the forces and have the benefit of paying my own wages with super high tax charges.

...and over half of my council tax goes to pay not only your salary, but your gold plated pension, while most other companies have a pension shortfall. all courtesy of Gordon Brown and his £80 billion raid on company pension schemes!

I pay over £100 a month for my pension, and i'm on a low income bracket. I'm not chuffed to bits with it TBH. I won't be staying in Local Government for long, there just isn't the opportunity for development you get within private companies. So it really is swings and roundabouts.

Edited to add:
And at least I am paying a pension. Most people my age these days are not, as they are thinking about the now and failing to plan for the future, and are relying on the state to sort them out when they finally get to retirement age.

Exactly. Although as a recent graduate still scraping out of the bottom of my overdraft I do hate seeing over £100 each month go somewhere I can't get at it, I know that my parents are now getting to the age where they're glad they have pensions. When speaking to my friends about it I was appalled that none of them were in pension schemes - if you don't start paying in at 25 and pay in for 40 years, you won't even get the maximum out as far as I understand.
