London Underground tube drivers - we feel their pain
Driving a train on the London Underground. It's a tough job, certainly. Not too much steering involved, mind, but well worth shelling out a starting salary of £40,000, 38 days holiday and free travel on public transport. You've got to wonder how they manage to put food on the table - no wonder the union is calling for a five per cent pay rise in the throes of a recession.
Some people just can't help themselves but whine about what a bunch of self-centred, selfish, arrogant pricks the union officials are though. Especially the commuters. And with more strikes likely, you can guarantee more will moan and whinge like girls about how they can't get to work and businesses across the capital are losing millions during said recession. Honestly, some people, eh?
For that minority of heartless commuters who care nothing for the plight of the penniless tube driver, here's a song (from 2006, when drivers were paid even less, if such a figure is imaginable) you'll no doubt revel in. So cruel.
