Let's just clear something up

Published 07/05/2013

Rosie Millard (Saturday Review, May 4) reports her interviewees, who can no longer afford cleaners, as complaining that "it seemed to be the middle class that are suffering most" in the recession, with one saying: "I didn't go to university for four years in order to do this [cleaning her house]".

As somebody with an "arty, creative, inessential" job who is just about to do the vacuuming, I'm glad I saw my time at poly 25 years ago as an opportunity to learn about something I was interested in, rather than just a means of "having it all" and claiming the right to employ somebody to clean up after me in my own home.
