    A cushy life on the welfare state subsidised by hard working taxpayers?

    They dont have a good work ethic, would rather sit on there arse and get money handed to them.

    The person who I have been working with, training for the last 3 years is thinking about flying the nest.
    What to do next, find a youngest or team up with another taper?

    not everyones like that i've been trying to get someone to take me on for past 3 years since i was 17 after my old taping company went bust. Decided to go on my own and its been a nightmare trying to find work, no client base and age puts few people off ( cant really compete with someone who has 30-40years experience) still plodding along with labouring whilst trying to build up taping work

    Bit to far away for me. But PM me name and number. No promises but I can give your number to someone that might be able to get you some work up there.
