Your Council Tax at work

Council workers are being given more than two days’ pay a year for being in a lift.
Under the scheme, second-floor staff get two minutes a day, those on floors three to six get three minutes and staff on floors seven, nine and twelve get four minutes. Those on the tenth and eleventh floors at the town centre head offices are given a five-minute “lift allowance” each day....a pay review means that the allowance could be abolished.

An example of how rigorous the cost cutting in the public sector is becoming, though I expect they are still expecting a pay increase this year.


Better not tell the unions down here. With the deepest mines in the world there'll be hell to pay.
