    Was chatting with a mate of mine (another taper) during the week, he mentioned that the firm he is working for have put the rates up for boarders as they are struggling for labour, of course this led to the tapers asking when their rates are going up!

    Thats happened with our lot and a few others the last year.The money has come from somewhere....us??? so many have dropped out of the boarding and nobody in their right mind is coming through...how can two blokes bust their balls for 60 a day each on price.And yes this will come to us before long...the worm/tide is turning........please add what you hear lads....

    I agree, a lot of labour has left the game and is working elsewhere like stacking shelves in Tesco/Asda etc! Ok they are most likely on 5k less a year but those with families will be claiming tax credits and that cancels out the wage drop, they are in the dry/warm and also get a company pension so why would they come back?! Other labour with families are just giving up and claiming benefits as they get near on same as slogging the nads off!

    Ok, Salisbury is only 30mins from me but I am confused (easily done)

    I have just read the private message you sent me and I googled the telephone number you gave for me to call you.

    According to Google that phone number will get me through to Gigolo's Take away (New Milton)! no wonder you are available till 11pm!
