Not my intention to be smug or self satisified or tell everyone
anything about the facts of their lives. I'm simply trying to radically challenge, in a fairly closed forum, a mindset of "got no freedom of choice" being articulated by a few people in the context of a debate over employee's t's & c's being unilaterally changed. I'm not saying anyone should
change their job and/or location but rather they could
if they chose to. The worse thing IMO about the way ecomomics and politics have gone in UK since 1979 to present day is the way many, many of our people now feel trapped and afraid of the future, and are utterly convinced they cannot change their circumstances whoever unsatisfactory they find them to be.
Specifically if your employer tries to screw you over and treats you unfairly join a trade union, fight them, find another employer or simply accept that you are complicit in the screwing.
btw would it be regarded it smug if someone posted on here "I've taken up cycling after a 5 year break and as a result have lost 3 stone, hurrah, you can do it too"?
