    Somebody will do it for that.

    Probably a redundant NHS call centre manager. Or something.

    I think we might need to get used to the fact that being able to use MS office and apply some knowledge of relational database design isn't a ticket on the gravy train. There are plenty of people who aren't "highly paid IT contractors" (i.e bright school leavers & recent graddies who have a clue but are struggling to find work) but they can do this sort of stuff and although it might not be what they aspire to they'll glad of the money and the experience. I had similar temp jobs myself when I first graduated, including amongst other things working in a PC factory doing quality control and diagnosing component failures for £3.50/hr.

    Times are hard, and it's better to eat humble pie than starve.

    Agreed. Carefully costed to be preferable to dunking your snout into the ever-diminishing benefits trough.

    I spent a couple of months fixing defective monitors a few years back. All the tubes were skewed, fixing them involved pulling the back off, fiddling with the beam guides and applying adhesive magnets to adjust the picture. £3.50 hour and the opportunity to electricute yourself.

    When I was a desperate student, I worked at the BAT ciggie factory in Southampton as a general dogsbody.

    I forget how much it was an hour, but it wasn't enough as I used to come home stinking of tobacco. Grim.
