    Well Waitrose and Asda sell different products. Can't get the various noodles from foreign places I like from Waitrose or even Sainsburys. However Waitrose sells far better cakes and alcohol. And none of the mentioned have the aisles of crap....

      bbp did you get what you need by way of an answer?

      If your agent takes a percentage, maybe they can do the conversation for you. I had that happen in my first contract role and got 10%, it took 5 minutes. They can just ask, if it is a no then at least it was tried. Remember, they will get more money if it is percentage based and have the contract negotiation skills.

        Need to ask the agent if they are on a fixed commission first. If they are then no amount of negotiation will work and save you a ton of time.

          So start hunting for a new contract so you are in a position to ask for more money (matching the rate of your newly found better paying contract) or don't expect an increase.
          This is not true, I am receiving a rate increase of 1% in April.
