    The issue is taking on - companies are hiring contractors but if things go quiet then they will be the first to go.

    There are few full time well paid jobs in the uk

    @ Murdoch , seems to be the same everywhere mate . Agencies then are screwing us all over ! Some agencies in Ireland have popped up looking for qualified sparks to work for 450 euro week wage after tax , personally wouldnt waiste my experience gained in the sector for that crap !! I know theres men out there have to provide for families and bite the bullet and work for it , they seem to have people by the balls
