SOURCE DAILY MAIL Real earnings are back to 2003 levels and millions may ‘never see their finances recover from the economic downturn'
Real earnings peaked in 2009 (average wage £12.25/hour), but since then pay increases have been outstripped by inflation, knocking the average back down to where it was in 2003 (£11.21/hour), the Office for National Statistics said.

  2. Average wage of £11.21 as it was in 2003? Wow! what I (and countless others) wouldn't give for a wage like that! For those of us who have no work or do the work that underpins all (you know the ones? they serve you in a shop, clean your toilets at work, clean your homes, make your food etc.) owning a home is but a distant dream that lays in ruins; you can't save for anything on minimum wage whilst paying a greedy buy-to-let landlord the lions share of your money for a hovel (& before you start I KNOW what the private rental sector is really like. I have scars on my lungs from living in damp conditions & have been subjected to illegal eviction & threats against my person by scum landlords that consider my safety & rights second to their bank balance).

    First,by introducing rent caps we can increase the amounts of money that people can save towards a deposit. Second we need to make owning more than 1 home as unattractive prospect as possible; tax it, tax it to hell, make the council tax truly ruinous. Thirdly, make it illegal for any building to sit empty for more than a year & that it must be occupied for a minimum of say 10 days a per month to be considered occupied. If the law is not adhered to the council can seize the building to be used for the much needed social housing shortage & make the negligent land owner pay for renovation. It really is time for the people of this country to claim back the right to a roof over their head.

    (oh and while we're at it, STOP WATCHING that damn daytime middle-englander 'porn' such as Homes under the hammer, it only encourages them!)
