Allow me to to continue my celebration of misery by posting another gloomy new topic this evening. I guess everyone's in the same boat regarding salaries regardless of profession, but what brought it home to me was recently seeing an ad for a job I left 3 years ago (same job - same company). The salary was Â£35K. I was on Â£36K when I left that position. You can get a job as a bus driver where I live for Â£35K. How utterly depressing. Anyone else got any anecdotes or opinions to this effect?
