    At least this shows the agent can use a calculator

    £220 x 50 weeks x 5 days per week = £55K.

    And you just need to extend the year to 57 weeks and you get over £62K

    Could it be a cash strapped client or a greedy agent pocketing half the rate?

    Nah, you forgot VAT

    £55K x 1.2 = £66K

    Take another 2 weeks off, you've earned it

    It totally works this way
