LISTEN: Jobless Man Who Won't Get Up At 8am

Thursday 20th June 2013

Listen to this remarkable call from Paul, an unemployed man who turned down a job because he didn't want to start at 8am.

Paul has been unemployed for seven years and revealed that he was recently offered a job, but he thought it was unfair that he would have had to start that early.

The call infuriated Julia Hartley-Brewer, who was furious that he was still getting benefits, despite turning down employment.

Listen to the amazing conversation below...

That amazing phone call became a viral hit across the internet and was listened to more than 100,000 times.

Paul called Julia again this afternoon to give an update on his life. After the previous call, he contacted the company who had offered him a job and asked if he could still take it.

He was given the job, but after being half an hour late for work, he was fired from the company.
