And some news on lateness just in...

According to a recent survey, "More than 11 million hours per year are lost to lateness in the UK as a result of transport delays alone, and the true figure for tardiness at work is thought to be much higher. The total cost to the UK economy for transport-related lateness is estimated to be £7.7 billion per annum".

Those most likely to be late include men, those with children, younger workers and those with no educational qualifications.

The findings also discuss the "carrot and stick" approach to tardiness.

There's nothing particular new about their findings except to say that this is just more evidence that many people are fed up with their jobs.
