#5fifty5 'Must Have Bubbly Personality'

A job spec sent in by a listener that has really got my back up.

‘Must have bubbly personality’

Why the bubbly?

Is this a new requirement on the job market?

Were they asking for ‘bubbly’ during the economic boom years of New Labour when many people had reason to be bubbly?

And looking at the ad in closer detail, it’s £7.25 an hour.

If you’re an employer, you’re certainly not getting bubbly for £7.25 an hour.

It costs a fortune just to rent a room in London.

If companies pay their workers a proper salary, I’m sure they’ll find a way to be bubbly for you.

£7.25 an hour, they’re either still living at home or living in a room and climbing up a ladder every night to get up to their mezzanine bed.
