Ever felt you’re getting poorer? - read on
The left of centre think tank, resource foundation, has recently produced a report looking into low pay in modern day Britain.
The report looks at trends from 1975 to 2012, and looks at the effect of the financial crisis over the last five years.
There is some evidence to suggest that any historical links between productivity and wage rates are now dis-located. The report questions whether this is a short term effect of the financial crisis or whether there are structural changes occurring in the British Economy, and suggests that the recovery may reinforce these effects.
The report is not the lightest of reads, but female workers and those aged 16 to 30 may find the report interesting.

Staffordshire Police - Public Enquiry Desks reduced hours from October 2015
As part of the drive to prioritise budget towards frontline policing, changes are going to be made to the opening hours of some of Staffordshire Police’s public enquiry desks.

A 12-month estates review carried out jointly by Staffordshire’s PCC and the Police Service has identified where buildings are underused, co-location with other services is appropriate and where new investment in buildings is needed.
The ongoing rollout in Staffordshire of new mobile technology that will see officers out of police stations and in communities for an extra 250,000 hours each year – the equivalent of an extra 100 officers on duty time-wise – was also taken into account.

The review found that the number of people using traditional police stations has reduced significantly in recent years with some enquiry desks seeing fewer than two visitors a day.
Opening hours at 12 of the 21 public enquiry desks across the county won’t change. Six will see hours reduce and three, enquiry desks at Chasetown, Tunstall and Stoke police stations, will close by the end of October this year
