    I could tell you stories!!!

    I could have done a blog on the incidents that happened when I ran the agency!

    Cleaner getting drunk on the client's booze and throwing up on the sofa - blamed the client for NOT having the booze under lock and key!!! WTF!!

    Client married their cleaner - I did try to continue getting paid for her services to him but he wouldn't wear it!!

    You get paid more in benefits and a free house if you stay at home unemployed. Where is the motivation to go out and slog it out as a cleaner ? Most of the cleaners are just chancers wanting to meet a millionaire like AtW and do some gold digging.

    They are hardly "stories". Mr Pad has better stories than that without owning any cleaner agency.

    Yup OP, I think this is par for the course with any manual job in the UK.

    I dont have the link, but there's a guy in the midlands who now ONLY hires eastern european workers for this reason.

    His business is doing well and he's increased his pay scale based on length of service.

    I think the problem is our system, since the 80's has totally demeaned any manual labourers - if you tell your children that without academic qualifications that are useful in the office that they are "FAILURES" then what attitude do you expect?

    Could you, as a child (which I think 18 yr olds are) really "accept" that you're a failure by working what you've been conditioned to believe is the work undertaken by people with little value?

    Yes, I do think its Tory to say 95% can go to college, because they can't - I couldn't .

    I blame the crap we're putting our kids through, but us gifted high earning middle classes sometimes have difficulty accepting that the UK is not the land of opportunity it was for us. Everyone's world is different , thats why we have psychology and sociology.

    That said, these skills have been completely eroded by Economics and Marketing.

    Our education system is now dying a slow death thanks to our current government and no one seems to care.

    In 5 years, if things dont change, EVERY school will be out of state control as an academy - Ofsted change from "Satisfactory" to "Needs improvement" means that schools that are doing fine by the national curriculum will also be branded failures - Every school that "Needs improvement" will have a crash team assigned to manage it, to make it an academy.

    IMHO <flame away>
