Hey. Well, I always get a wage slip a few days before the pay appears. Like when you think 'Why am I in such a bad mood?' and you realise it's PMT! So have you had that? I'm not trying to alarm you, just warning you to keep a beady eye on what's going on with your pay. I'm also NQT, started 31/10/11 and broken ankle means I am signed off for this whole half-term. The NUT website says I'm entitled to 25 days' pay, but I have received £479 (instead of the princely sum of £1799). So urrr. That is NOT 25 days' pay! I don't know what to do except panic and cry, but I've created a thread begging someone to tell me what to do! So if you feel like you're being dicked around, too, hopefully some kind person will leave some advice in my thread that will help you. I am SO upset and mad this morning! You work your **** off for peanuts. Then you get ill or injured and get little more than JSA. What a kick in the face. Wow yeah I feel really valued and respected here. I haven't smoked for two weeks but I'm off for a cigarette now! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!
