I have been in the situation where I HAD to - repeat HAD to work very long hours to clear debts and support my family - I was VERY greatful of the chance to do that - I worked 84 hours a week for about 2 years - hard going but it got me out of the shit!!!
Why should ANYONE who is earning £120,000 a year and i9s not hourly paid DICTATE to people who desperately need the money??? Bloody socialists attitudes stink - do they REALLY know whats best for someone facing bankrupcy or having their house repossesed???
Alright maybe things like this shouldn't happen but this is the REAL WORLD. having been in the situation myself I know what it is like!!!
I have friends with Ferraris and Aston Martins who would NOT be effected by this - I have friends who work in petrol stations or as security guards who would!!!!
