Having worked four times over the years (Typewriter Centres, Royce Thompson,
MBS & Alphatronics) for city centre companies my answer woould be simple -
Its basically just too much hassle, expense and irritation - there's plenty
of places on the periphery or in the suburbs that pay as much and simply
don't give you that level of daily grind.
