Gordonomics: Paid to do nothing in lift.

Council workers are being paid an extra two days' salary a year in travel expenses - for standing in a lift.
Staff at Rochdale Council's Municipal Office dished out thousands each year for claims of up to five minutes for employees travelling each day from the entrance of the building - known as the black box - to their desks.
So, during a standard 36-hour week, staff are allotted 25 minutes lift time, meaning they only have to spend 35 hours and 35 minutes working.
Over the course of a year this adds up to almost 20 hours - well over two working days - when they are effectively being paid for using the lift.

Nice work if you can get it. Time to cull the public sector, not sack them just cull them like baby seals.
