And this from Burning Our Money
Me, I make sandwiches, I just worked 19 out of the last 27 hours because a colleague's gone on holiday and our shift covering process isn't very robust. And for little over minimum wage, in London.
The London thing completely unrelationed but important. A one-bedroom flat in London costs £120,000, in Hull it costs £20,000. The national minimum wage is the same across the UK. So 'oop nawth' a cheap flat is about 2X minimum wage and 'daan saaf' its about 10X minimum wage. The property ladder's first rung is five times as far away.
