The Trireme -
The Trireme is awarded for what one freelance called the "worst terms since I was last chained to the oars".
This month's Trireme goes to the Belfast Telegraph, reported by one Rate for the Job contributor as paying £86.00 for a reporting shift. For a seven-hour shift, that would be £12 an hour before tax. Anyone earning enough to pay tax would take home £9.60 an hour net, £1.39 above Northern Ireland minimum wage.
