At long last I'm no longer in the realms of part time / zero hour contracts bouncing from job to job!! I am so excited to be going back into full time employment with as much overtime as I can ever want plus job security and a wage that reflects skills! Wraith is a happy bunny right now.

Good for you. We need to kick this American bs out of Britain. Treating people like cattle is very bad.

Mmm not to poke a hornets nest, but I have mixed views. Zero hours needs banning completely of that I'm 100% sure, job center work trials needs promoting imho if the tax payer is paying your wage you should damn well earn it, by that I don't mean working 30+ hours a week for UC/Job seekers it should at least 8 - 12Hours it promotes a good work ethic and inspires people to try harder for more.



Part time has always been a thing, it's great for students or single parents maybe even a stop gap while you choose a new career path. Finding work with good wages, hours, benefits and security these days are few and far between but there is always work somewhere.

Thank you
I got another roughly 24ish weeks left before I get to that point. However once done with my current unit in about 6 weeks, I get access to more career support(interview training, resume building, portfolio web application, etc) from my school, so getting started on that is a priority

What the f have I done, next car I checked was a Xantia and I pulled the trigger.
