The Agenda - Salary Transparency 21.02.2018

Does it really matter finding out what your read more

Does it really matter finding out what your colleague earns if you’re happy in your work? The answer is possible no, but if it does become clear that you are earning a lot less it can lead to disruption in the workplace. We asked, would access to each other’s salaries in companies in Dubai benefit the workplace? Should this information be available?

Is it acceptable to be forced to buy a plastic straw in a restaurant? Should you expect one when ordering a meal? So what about the UAE? Could the simple straw become a thing of the past? How will it help the environment? Would people be happy to drink their beverage strawless in a restaurant?


The Agenda - Crying Children in Public & Vaping 15.02.2018

In the UK a woman was asked to read more

In the UK a woman was asked to leave a café because her baby was crying. The owners of the café said that they simply asked her to take the baby outside until they calmed down.

If they are shouting and screaming, breaking things – vandalism? On the vaping front it’s really a case of are you for or against it. It isn’t really limited to smoking in public places. A difficult one to pull together with research showing it’s good for you while other studies show the opposite. All down to opinion. Do you think e-cigarettes should be allowed in indoor public spaces?What’s the point of vaping? I know to stop people smoking cigarettes but the smell is horrible and worse than sheesha.

Our appearance, the way we act on a personal level? What would you change about yourself to make you a little happier? We also welcome callers who want to declare their love for their husbands and wives on Valentine’s Day.


The Agenda - Trust In Relationships 13.02.2018

A study showing over 36% of spouses spy read more

A study showing over 36% of spouses spy on their partners online is a bit alarming, but not as much as people using tracking devices on their husbands’ and wives’ mobile phones to follow their daily actions. Are your concerned about what your partner gets up to? Are you spying or are you being spied on?
