    You claim to be an expert in 'reading between the lines' so it shouldn't be necessary!

    To get this back on topic,

    Workers want a fair day's work for a fair day's pay, except that many want a week's pay for a day's work! (Not really surprising considering the rapidly increasing cost of living).

    Employers (in small firms particularly) are feeling pinched from many directions, payroll being one, costs of leases on premises, Business rates, getting customers to pay their accounts (a biggie), costs of necessary employee training and the list goes on. I'm not surprised that so many small (and not so small) firms go to the wall in the current economic climate.

    Cheers, HG

    The thing is Clapco, that the spaces between your lines are either so non-existent or so wide that it is hard for any normal person to make head or tale out of. Twisted Evil

    Yes HG... as usual, there is a lot of wisdom in your words !

    I have found that government after government - of all shades - keep saying that they are going to help the small businesses but they seldom actually do.

    I think this "small business" activity - or not - is just like the way that successive governments treat the weak and the old and the sick in the population as it is the easy targets that governments cannot resist attacking.

    Words of wisdom indeed - I notice HG has a reputation of 81 which I presume is good since Paps has one of -29. How are these ratings changed? Should there be a vote for me button somewhere?

    To save you the trouble it is done automatically or by the person hitting the "thanks" button included in the bottom line of every posting.

    I do not get accolades as I am too critical of other-people's posts.

    I DO nevertheless hit the "thanks" button fairly regularly too - for others - but that does not swell my standing.
