    Interestingly, the meet-the-editors panel neglected to mention the derisory wages students will receive, even after passing all their exams.
    I did a cursory check of the average wage for a bin man in the UK, and it was £17,000 at entry level.
    I started off at £12,500-odd and after four years, earning my NCJ stripes and a promotion, I find myself on £15,500.
    Mostyly likely, these kids will not receive any bonuses for syndication, and will see their sales colleagues earning tidy commissions for work they have contributed to.
    The satisfaction of getting a great story wears thin very quickly nowadays.

    Apologies for the typos – hard to be accurate when you’re in a bit of a grump.
