You can blame privatisation for the salary for Train Operators, not everyone has the technical ability or the disapline to drive trains, they are complicated, using in tandem different mediums to work.

The Market Place Domminates wages and it the Market that sets the wages and they would if they could pay less but let's face it would you have a responsible dilligent person on the front of a train on say 15k a year? NO. By the way it's 30 days holiday a year and you loose your bank holidays apart from Xmas day.

I don't have to justify tube drivers salary I am not a tube driver it's simple economics.

Keep slagging off LUL staff and you will get people like Mr Crow in the media.

As for firemen they only work four days a week and have other jobs and two houses, don't bother trying to deni as I know one or two that live in Suffolk 4 days a week and work in london for the other 4, when I speak to them about the technical side of things they recon they have a powerfull jet wash to contend with and basically a lorry with a water pump.

its a prestige job that has hours and hours of doing nothing.

Ageism is now illegal so why don't you apply to LUL and see how you get on and let us all know.


So why are they striking against working Boxing day ?

Quote:
£50,000-a-year Tube drivers' Boxing Day strike... after their demands for triple pay are turned down

Drivers demand £366 and a lieu day for December 26
92% of those balloted vote for industrial action
Trade union Aslef also announce strikes on January 16, February 3 and 13
Tube drivers already earn £45,545 basic salary and pay will soar to £52,000 by 2015
Chamber of Commerces accuse Aslef of 'holding London businesses to ransom'
