    Happy to report that we're mostly still earning a mint and those who return to permiedom will probably do so temporarily until another opportunity arises, whether here or overseas. That's the thing about contractors, they don't sit on their backsides wishing things were different.

    (OP: sorry to derail your thread, but this is probably good for General now )
    Yep, spot on, a tactical move I've called it. But given said permie role I'm now in is 12 miles away from home along quiet rural roads but paying city salary, so far so good :-)

    In all seriousness - if I was perm getting a poor salary like £300-400 per week as contractors around me earned sensible money, I'd probably have a large chip on my shoulder too.

    Ouch.

    I’m sure you’ll cope

    So you actually pay more tax than an employee. But have minimal employment benefits.

    Further reform is needed.

    Well it's a nice thought. Snag is, your top rate is driven by the least informed of your peers and the market rate is driven by people working for fourpence an hour. Unless you have something quite specific, rate negotiations are out of your control.
