We managed to get a 7% pay increase, still below inflation- LOL. 
 

So in real terms, a pay cut. 
 

Naturally, everyone was delighted with that, looked at me like I had two heads when I suggested we should've held out for the RPI. 

It's not a pay cut Consi. 7% is decent you should be glad of it tbh.

If the price of goods is up 11%, and you get 7% you're 4% down in relation to buying the things you need to live. 
 

Your wages aren't in alignment with the price of goods.

Your pay will be 7% higher. What you choose to spend it on is up to you.

It's not a pay cut. If I go on a cheaper mortgage deal have I had a pay rise?

Not if your wage depresses by a value greater than the difference between your original mortgage rate and your new one. 
 

You dumb fuck.

Your wage isn't depressing though, it's going up.

If your wage doesn't go up in line inflation, it's being depressed.

Wages goes up 7, cost goes up 11, I'm still put out by 4. 
 

For all intents and purposes, it's a pay cut. 
 

Technically, you're right, it isn't. 
 

But that's technical. The reality is that it very much is. 
 

Burger nips.

Do you think every company can actually afford to give a 7% payrise 🤔

Do you think every company has been able to raise their prices to match the RPI?

Can they? "IAG, the airline consortium that owns British Airways, lost almost £5,000 per minute during the first three months of 2022 – but is set to become profitable in spring and summer."

 

Surely have a lot of debt to pay off?

Find it mad to think these companies have no reserves. 
 

The staff are only asking to have their 10% cut from the pandemic done away with in any case. Hardly much to expect.

It’s a hard one. He has genuine fuckwit moments where he’s not acting the goat so it can be tricky sometimes to work out.

lol

You're making me take less pity on you. 
 

You'll regret having no convictions in life when you're lying on your death bed, yellow from the drink induced jaundice, thinking "where are my kids? Oh yeah they hate me because I'm an alcoholic who never had an ounce of passion in his bones" 

 

Dont do this today, big boy.

You do realise that Network Rail is paid for by taxpayers.

It seems to be all the workers paid for by taxpayers have their snouts in the trough.

If its private companies and they can afford it then it’s a fair fight.
