We were all in more or less general agreement that the staff were worked excessively hard, even for a fit young man who was the secret tester.
The one notable dissenter was a chap who is hosting some Polish friends at the moment and who apparently commented along the lines of "Why do UK employees expect to get paid for a work shift and then complain when they are expected to work for their money." A further comment by the senior male member of the Polish family suggested that a mere 10 hour shift such as that shown on the documentary could well be considered easy money. OK, maybe there might have been some braggadocio but apparently the comments were made seemingly in good faith as it were.
Got me to wondering...
Have we lost the work ethic here in the UK? For manual work at least?
