Earnings anger


For Mr Honeyman to ask for a little less complaining is incomprehensible and frankly distasteful. For graduate engineers from all sizes of companies to make an attempt at a uniform front and stand together on the issue of low pay is something to be proud of.

I'd rather see graduates trying for pay rises even if there is no chance of getting one. It shows self-determination a sense of self-worth. And if that means some managers get an ear bashing now and again, well tough.

If I were a manager I hope I would have the foresight to employ graduates with a bit of gall rather than one who might sit quietly on the side lines and accept their lot.
