I had an email today from VE offering £150 for Devon and Cornwall days (usually high rate locations due to geography). I politely told them to get stuffed, and that I would remember this opportunistic lowering of rates in future. They probably don’t care…

I haven’t had a discussion with the independent I work in yet. I would happily work for less for them for now as they are a one man show and this is likely crippling them. They also offered me financial help during lockdown in case I needed it, I won’t forget that.

The multiples are definitely using this as an opportunity though, I do believe. I might have considered a small reduction as these are unprecedented times and I do appreciate the financial difficulties we are all facing, but 50% is way too much.
