Sorry to be singling out you, but this sort of a line is being said more and more often. It really infuriates me.
My apologies, clearly he is more qualified than me, but out of curiosity how do you know this for sure?
Am I the only one that hasn't woken up from the nightmare that is recession.
Silly me.

25K in dublin, with a negative equity morgage and 2 kids wouldn't see you through 6 months, now 25K in cork would be a different matter, I'd say there are cleaners in dublin on more than 25K.
I earn a lot more than 25K AND my wife also needs to work, which is a fact I'm not proud of, although I'm very proud of her.

When I started this work my boss gave me an extra €25 a week, but I just don't think it's enough for the extra responsibility and work I'm doing.

So my question is should I look for more( currently on 25k ) or should I be glad to have a job?

Sorry to bump an old thread here but just thought I'd give an update.

Never got a pay rise despite asking for it twice, so just put my head down and gave the job all I could.
My employer never once gave me any credit for doing a good job despite the main client telling him they were very happy with my work.

So this week I got called into the main clients headquarters, and they offered me a permanent position. €38,000 per year, company car, phone, laptop, and all hotel lunch and dinner covered!

So for anyone out there who is slaving away getting nowhere, don't give up hope, I didn't
