I don't have any answers. I find the case interesting so am following it. As far as I understand it they are saying it is the same job but in 2 different environments. Perhaps like a nurse who works...

I can imagine it is back breaking work. But wages aren't only calculated on how physically demanding a job is. Other skills are valued too. That's what this one is going to come down to. I don't know...

I'm probably going to regret this but I'm going to admit that I have, in the past, dabbled in this kind of thing. I had a bit of a following with people coming to see me wanting readings. It was when...

And I can see that they might be correct. I see the argument that they are comparable. The 'other stuff' is part of the job. If you work in a shop the customer service is vital, not just an...

You seem to think I am arguing in favour of them getting equal pay. I'm not. I don't know enough about the situation. What I am saying is it will be interesting to see what the outcome is.

Exactly this.

People saying the store workers don't do an equal job are mistaken. How do they think the goods get on the shelves :o

I can see how it can be argued that the 2 jobs are equal. The...

I can still remember the thrill of getting birthday telegrams from a rather mysterious uncle of mine who travelled the world. It was always exciting (yes, it was a simpler time in the 60s and 70s)

I actually enjoyed Judy's dance this week. I didn't vote for her (or Scott either) but she certainly wasn't the worst. I though this week she was better than Alison too.

Agree and agree :D Artem did nothing for me. Aljaz is lovely, though not only because of the cheekbones etc but because he seems a sweet, funny man.
