The Pollster


When I spent time with a New Deal adviser last week, he despaired at trying to persuade employers to offer jobs to suit mothers' hours: there were none in supermarkets, offices or anywhere. If employers were forced to offer all jobs part time, mothers' prospects could be transformed. And that's the case right up the career ladder; highly skilled mothers find no part-time jobs advertised either.

Employers...forced...all....part time??

It is terrifying, really, that anyone can take this bozo seriously.

I had the pleasure of watching Devil's Kitchen read this Guardian article in the pub last night. I thought he was going to have an embolism when he got to that bit.
