Disillusioned with pay farce

The continuing unveiling of public sector wages by the media has left this self-employed small builder very disillusioned.

I have often done work for public servants and I would regularly be chastised for what I was charging, but I would soon cop myself on when I paid for my materials, tools, van, accountant, VAT and time lost travelling between jobs.

I never dared look for time-and-a-half when I worked late to finish a job.
