“Finding myself in the lift with the boss, I told him something I never thought I’d hear myself say: ‘I feel I’m not earning my keep. Could you give me some more work to do, please?'”
Daily Mail columnist Tom Utley’s words to ‘the boss’ (presumably Paul Dacre in this case) after having taken up the offer of working one day a week instead of four for the same money.”But probably best for Utley’s at work relations that he came to this conclusion then:
“Harder still was looking my colleagues in the eye, on the one day a week when I was required to work.
“After all, they were labouring all hours to help pay my wages, while I was getting something for nothing. It just felt wrong.”
