ORDINARY workers are torn over whether they would prefer being exploited by corporations inside or outside of the European Union.
Research by the Institute for Studies found a precisely equal referendum split between non-executive workers who will still have to work very hard for barely enough money, regardless of the political context.
Telesales operative Tom Logan said: “While we are part of the EU, I come here every morning, sit in this chair, put on my headphones and grind it out until 6pm apart from lunchtime and some monitored toilet breaks.
“At the end of the week I have barely enough money to pay my rent, while the bosses of the corporation that employs me get on private jets and fly somewhere peaceful to eat lobsters the size of labradors.
“If we vote ‘leave’, pretty much the same thing is going to happen. It’s an exciting time.”
Retail worker Nikki Hollis said: “Last week loads of my friends got laid off because of ’tough trading conditions’ and I found out I wasn’t getting a pension because my boss needs the money for his divorce.
“There’s nothing I can do about any of this because I went to a state school and am not allowed to have hopes and dreams.
“Can’t wait to see what happens on Thursday.”
