    Unless it's fun or glamorous takes little skill or time to do. Your going to need to pay someone.

    Apparently, bringing up children and running the house! :mad: Really pisses me off when housewives/househusband/house-better-description-I-cannot-think-of-right-now are considered not to be working.
    Sorry; am I derailing?

    No, IMHO you're not derailing, and carers (ie. not careworkers) get the same treatment. Try to get insurance and you're treated as unemployed. People assume that you've got unlimited free time to do their errands or whatever else (on top of whatever you normally do), and oh yes, the very worst one is "have you considered getting a job?". :mad:

    First thing I thought of when I saw the thread title was 'looking after family members'. Can you imagine how much it would cost to pay someone to be on call 24/7?

    Yeah, I don't have kids but housework, cooking, cleaning, shopping, staying in all day to deal with deliveries/workmen goes completely unpaid. I miss having a job so much. :oops:

    you wouldn't be derailing if this was a different thread. i thought about titling it 'jobs people are generally paid for that it is considered acceptable to ask them to do for free' but it's a bit of a mouthful.

    Interns - in any sector, but especially for MPs, the cheapskate exploitative bastards.

    I was just thinking, presumably unpaid internships don't exist in banking/finance, as you'd be considered too much of a loser to work in that field if you were actually willing to accept one.

    I'm sure they do. Keeps the poor people out of the well paid jobs doesn't it.

    A lot of city traders go straight to it out of school and are from less than rich backgrounds.

    A lot? I stand to be corrected but I'd be very surprised if people from that background weren't in a small minority tbh.

    Well probably less and less these days, but there's a definite history of people going into it young who haven't got degrees - some of them from working class backgrounds. TBF under the current climate it's probably less and less, but it still goes to prove that you don't have to come from a rich family to be an arsehole.
