Shop the bastards !!!

info below for the SUN, but there are loads of others who would probably go for your story, I am not normally a fan of cheap tabloid journalism, but I am less of a fan of large corporations treating their work force like s**t !!

best of luck.

__________________________


How can I contact The Sun?
The fastest way is to call our journalists on 0207 782 4100 (from outside the UK dial 0044 207 782 4100).

You don't need to worry about the cost of the call either - as we'll call you back right away!

We'll tell you immediately if we like your story and, if appropriate, give you an idea of what it could be worth.

You can also email us on talkback@the-sun.co.uk or text us on 07917 576539.

Remember to include a phone number - preferably a mobile - where we can call you back.

How much is my story worth?

A big exclusive used on the front page could be worth thousands of pounds, but a smaller story will be worth less.

The only way to find out how much YOU could make is to call us now.

But remember - don't tell another newspaper.

Your story is worth much more if you only tell The Sun.

What happens when I tell you my story?

A reporter will call you to check the facts and arrange a meeting, if necessary.

They may bring a contract which obliges us to pay you when your story is published.

When will I get paid?

You will get your money by cheque or paid direct to your bank within a few weeks of your story appearing in the paper.

In very exceptional circumstances we may be able to make a payment to charity or pay you in cash.

Can I sell pictures too?

Yes, exclusive pictures are worth big cash to you. And if you have pictures to back up your story, it may be worth more.

What kind of stories is The Sun looking for?

Anything you can see being published in the paper. From celebrity exclusives to medical miracles to cheating politicians, we want your stories on them all.

We also love heart-warming real stories about our amazing readers, so if you've triumphed over tragedy, give us a call.

Can I remain anonymous?

Of course, and we always protect our sources. However, if the story involves you directly, it may be worth more to you if you are named and pictured.

Call 0207 782 4100 in confidence and we can discuss all your options.

Will I get more from another paper?

No. The Sun is the biggest and the best. And we look after our contacts, unlike our grubby "rivals".

So get in touch today!

They say they are for 'testing' but those new vegetarian sausages are unusually cheap.

is there maybe a little more behind all this,ie a few extra sick days in the past? if you are a star employee and they decide to fire you for having one day off sick from a food factory then something is very wrong..
