I really think you may have a biased perspective based on your area like you say.Originally Posted by ieuanr, post: 235110
There are civil servants earning hundreds of thousands yes and I'm not going to cry if they get cut back but it just won't be will it? No, it'll be nurses, schools because they know that the staff who remain will work as hard as they can to cover. why? because we've no choice, it's work harder or see people suffer.
the majority of public sector wages are in no way paid better than the private sector and they've already had pay freezes, increased hours and recruitment feezes.
In other words, when you're at a point in your life you need help, chances are it's going to be delivered by someone underpaid, covering for 3 or 4 positions that have been let go and worried about their future.
