I got so cheesed off in previous  roles that I now say,   "if you want
me on 24x7 call,  you are paying me 24x7, the rate is negotiable!"  

I find it  an unacceptable bind to  keep  lappy and my brain in a fit
order to  fix dead apps  when I have gone home,  for the  customary 12p
per week.

Yes  I am a contractor!!
Yes my current company has  an on call rota and no I am not part of it.

I have negotiated that successfully in the past,  don't know how
successful I will be with it in the future in a  slipping market though.
