Just come back from a train trip to The Czech Republic and whilst waiting in Brussels for connection I was sat listening to the train announcements on the Tannoy.
It occurred to me that as the announcer had to speak in French and Flemish he was essentially doing twice the work that any other announcer would do in other countries around Europe.
Does this mean that the announcers in Belgium get paid double time?
Or maybe work half the hours?
Or even retire early?
If not, I reckon that they are getting a bit of a rum deal.
