eBay is favourite website for shirking workers

eBay is now the most popular
website for shirkers to use while at work, a new survey claims.

The
survey, by recruitment agency Portfolio Payroll and law firm Peninsula,
shows that there has been an increase in internet usage in the workplace.

It
indicates that eBay, the internet-based auction site,
is the most popular website among workers across the UK,
with 43 per cent of those polled revealing that it is their favourite site to
visit.

The
