I think I'm crazy for turning down my first opportunity to earn 6 figures but the lost time traveling 4 days to the office and expected expenses like ubers/public trans/clothes/food make it almost not worth it. Thoughts?

I think middle of the road spending would yield me netting 13k more than I do now while fully remote. However my lost time traveling would be anywhere from 6.5k to 10k/year.

Is the UK tax system becoming regressive? Like how could Boris Johnson and his cohorts in the conservative government do this? Everyone is talking about the 1.25% NI increase but it seems people don’t realise the basic rate limit would soon be £37,700 as against the current £50,270. Which means some lower income taxpayers are going to be in the higher rate tax band of 40% from next year, and the existing higher rate taxpayers would be paying HMRC an extra £2,614 every year till 2026 🤦‍♀️

I’m an IT consultant and we just discussed an RFP with a manager. They wanted to use resources overseas/offshore for some capabilities and then one of the other managers said something on the lines of “or we could do pretty much everything offshore and do PMO here it would save the budget”. I’m sick of this approach. How am I supposed to get utilization and learn actual stuff outside of PMO if they always end up using offshore resources? It’s not fair for the new generation of consultants
