I have received my overtime schedule and I'm not happy about having to work for the next 3 weekends, but the money will be welcome.

I just got my pay and I came out with about £800 more than normal this month, so woohoo.

I have decided though I hate this country, and want out.

That is all.

Why do you hate it?

Come to New Zealnd, we have crap wages but GREAT views.

Yes. I find it amusing that many people hate the country they are in, but people in other countries would die to live there. Confusing, much?

I feel very ripped off, tax wise. We pay more than most countries for most items. I think the youth culture in this country is scandalous, and if you try to do anything about it, either you get stabbed or arrested yourself.

the policing is nonexistant, you are expected to investigate crimes against you because the police are tied up with red tape and paper work.

the government seems to reward the criminal classes while shafting law abiding citizens who do things correctly.

we are the soft touch of europe and I am sick of it.

want me to go on?

Psst. If you want the government to start caring about you you don't have to move country, just about a hundred and fifty miles south. I think anything North of Cheshire is a taxable wasteland in the government's eyes

yeah but Canada is so much nicer.

don't get me wrong, there's things I love about the country too.

Canada looks nice, but cold. And I'd be convinced everyone was talking about me in French. I thought tax was pretty high over there?

You're just cranky cos you know that Saints are going to maul the Rhinos tommorow night.

yeah but the cost of living is much lower....my house over there would be half what it is here.

biffa....the sad thing is you're right...I don't see anybody beating them in an important game this year.

How does the average wage compare?
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 9/27/07 - 9:07:59 AM EST (GMT-5)
me neither, it makes me sick. I'd rather you lot win it than them win everything again.
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 9/27/07 - 9:17:20 AM EST (GMT-5)
a little lower with the pound so strong, but it's comparable.

an entry level call centre job is advertised at around $30k or £15k roughly which is about the same as here.
