Subject: RE: BS: Teachers on strike UK
There are people much worse off.

We have made cuts in order to cope, including a ban on alcohol and buying the cheapest products and cutting out luxuries and being prudent with the use of Gas Electricity and Water. Fortunately we don't smoke and our holiday is already paid for (partly by Tesco 1 = 4 vouchers).

Our take home pay 17000 for a family of four.

Nobody to cry too or any big union to get us out on strike. Just tighten the spending purse and get on with life.

The damage to the country on all the strikes that are coming up will only make matters worse with a government that is spiralling out of control.

So stop thinking about yourselves, there are many many people in desperate situations, not just the teachers.
