It’s disheartening to see the fall in the rates paid to freelances (Up-skill battle, DW 17 September).
The building in which I live employs a freelance for the cleaning of the communal areas at £13 per hour more than a London creative director gets paid. Now I know where we can make economies. Are there any creative directors out there with Henry vacuum cleaner and mop-and-bucket experience who want £50 for an hour on the halls, stairs and landings of Langham Place?
