I think if you work continuously for a firm week in week out then you should be on the cards.... and get all the perks that goes with it

Trouble is you would be looking at wage cut of minimum 40% due to the massive overhead costs of employing through the books
my thoughts aswell....rates dropped for everyone...then sick pay insurance will be the law.

If a company is forced to employ through the books then the costs involved are huge, NI, holiday pay, sick pay, vans, tools, etc etc, wages would have to be slashed.

or their profits will take a hit...

I will never be employed again... not worth it in my eyes but people that work for firms week in week out do it for security. I doubt they are putting in invoices for £300 a day... I would imagine its shitty day work....

Like this the company gets cheap labour without giving any perks of being employed...

mind you there are idiots that charge £120 a day as self employed as well.... god knows how they afford to take 2 weeks off on holiday

It’s not much fun being off sick and being self employed I know that much. As a subby I get my tax rebate which I justify as my holiday pay. I ought to invest a bit in a pension really but I don’t.

You clearly have no idea of staffing costs then, employing someone full time on the books is stupidly expensive. And will see firms have to downsize or go to the wall.
