Cleaners worth more than bankers

From the BBC -- of absolutely no surprise to anyone, a study by think tank the New Economics Foundation, says hospital cleaners create £10 of value for every £1 they are paid.

Addtionally, the research shows that:

bankers are a drain on the country because of the damage they caused to the global economy. They reportedly destroy £7 of value for every £1 they earn. Meanwhile, senior advertising executives are said to "create stress".

A bit hard to believe that they needed to do an actual study to realize this, but it's always good to be aware of who exactly creates wealth. The report also showed that "child minders and waste recyclers are also doing jobs that create net wealth to the country."
