Another day in the office ...

The day didn't get off to a great start ... out of the blue came an email to all staff from head office telling us that the company was continuing with its pay freeze, probably for the rest of this financial year (which for us means all the way through to next October).

I understand why the pay freeze is in place - we continue to face an incredibly difficult financial situation - but there's no hiding how disappointing it is for everyone. The pay freeze affects everyone including head office and local directors, but obviously it will be even more keenly felt by the lowest paid amongst us. ****!
