i must remember not to believe anything tomorrow

31 Mar

london 5.51pm 12.8C sunny thursday 2016

today is the last day of march, and tomorrow is april fools day.

allready some wit is saying because of the leap year, april fools day this year will fall on  the 2nd of april. so expect more of that kind of thing tomorrow.

i shall be reading the news with a great deal of scepticism tomorrow. too bad if it is legit, but my advise to anyone is not to believe or  agree to anything tomorrow. and if u are going to ask anything of anyone dont do it tomorrow. dont have any advertisement u are thinking of doing let it appear tomorrow. otherwise u wont get any replies as everyone will be very wary of it being an april fools trick. 

personally i dislike april fool tricks. to me they are hoaxes and i dislike hoaxes, wherever they are done. i find attempts at generating laughter by using hoaxes are the lowest of the low form of humour.

what is not an april fool trick is that tomorrow all over 25s will get increased pay, as the new minimum rate kicks in. its good news for them, though they might find other benefits are removed , like higher rate for weekends and nights.

to understand why it applies only to over 25s read this.

    Why should the minimum wage be dependent on age? Shouldn’t everyone be paid the same? That sounds like a good April Fool’s Day joke!

      haha, it sounds like it doesn’t it? but there is a good reason why it is for over 25s only. this is because under 25s are seriously underemployed. even at the present low rate ,

      year 21 and over 18 to 20 Under 18 Apprentice*
      2015 £6.70 £5.30 £3.87 £3.30
      *This rate is for apprentices aged 16 to 18 and those aged 19 or over who are in their first year. All other apprentices are entitled to the National Minimum Wage for their age.

      … they have no experience that is why. and not many firm bothers to hire them even as apprentices. if they get the full rate of £7.50 an hour, no one will hire any under 25s ever. of course it doesnot follow that every over 25s is experienced, but they have to chose an age… so 25 is as good as any. that is my guess.

        the french people are more willing to strike to keep their priviledges, i think. and are quite successful too. we here often hear of farmers dumping manure , or blocking roads.
