I had my DD sitting alongside me watching that prog. and she is desperate to find paid employment. She does 3 little voluntary jobs & really enjoys them and I'm told she is a great help. We had Shaw Trust trying to find work for her. I was surprised about all these targets etc because, apart from ou...
Pixie - good for you girl!! Are you enjoying it? I was in a very posh shop recently and they had handknitted scarves in beautiful shades of lovely quality wool, just as plain as can be, no cables etc. At either end of the scarf were about six or seven items sewn on across the edge and they looked go...
Eun - I agree with Pixie. I wouldn't have her in my house and I'd have a word with the agency she comes from too.
Most of the workers in our area are on nothing like even £7 an hour.
Charles - minimum wage?
Thanks for all your replies. I don't think the pay is that bad (£8-£10ish an hour) considering you don't need any special qualifications. I am just surprised that, in this time of high unemployment, these places say they have trouble recruiting. A large supermarket near us had literally hundre...

A few years ago I used to see 2 women taking a small group of adults with learning difficulties to the shops. Several times I overheard them saying unpleasant things to them and this was usually when they thought nobody was listening. If they were at, say, the till and there were plenty of people ar...
<t>Big hug for that Dorothy. xx We get odd days when DD and I get on fairly OK . Then we get days when we just rub each other up the wrong way. The worst days though are when she says she hates me and comes out with things like "you don't care about me" or "you never listen to me". <br/> <br/> Once ...
Nilla - are you my long-lost twin sister? http://www.carersuk.org/images/icon_lol.gif I have spent all day with my elderly Mum, took her out shopping, for lunch and then back to hers to do some jobs for her. Difference is she is always very appreciative, which helps. So it must be really hard for yo...
