I am trying to write a cover letter using moderncv and, even though there is no error in compiling, `\flushbottom' does not seem to work at all. At the end of the page, after introducing, e.g. a page break, no additional space is included.

My MWE:

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper,roman]{moderncv}

\moderncvstyle{classic}

\name{Nacho}{Antón}

\begin{document}
\flushbottom

    moderncv sets \parskip to 0pt and so it can't stretch. With \parskip=0pt plus 1pt \flushbottom will work. – Ulrike Fischer Oct 28 '16 at 12:49

The class sets \parskip to 0pt and you have no displays or section headings so there is no space that \flushbottom can stretch to achieve the aim of placing the last line at the bottom.

you can do

\flushbottom
\setlength\parskip{\fill}

but this would create wildly differing spacing on each page.
