Local Government Job Cuts Thread

Recommended Posts

Guest LongBlackKilt


I've had various people's opinions about the public sector rammed home to me over the last few months, so go easy on the comment about the desirability of said cuts.

This is meant to be a descriptive rather than a prescriptive thread.

Add your own piece to the jigsaw and feel free to draw any conclusions on the HPC and wider results of these economies.

I'll kick off with the above link. It seems like top dog eat top dog -- and by the standards I've set I couldn't possibly comment on the desirability of that.

good to see the new chief exec is already earning his corn

This will be a new way of working for the council and is intended to allow senior management capacity to be appropriately focused on strategic and corporate priorities through the assistant chief executives and high quality, effective, efficient and customer-focused service delivery through the heads of service.

The Chief Executive of Salford Royal NHS Trust, a fairly typical Trust, earns over £200,000 p.a. That is much more than the Secretary of State for Health. Top salaries, Public and Private sector, have got out of all previous relationship to average earnings. I believe that it is the pursuit of comparators in the financial sector in the last ten years.

Shoot the bankers and put salary scales back on a base of sanity.

While I am at it, put a £35,0000 limit on pensions. Quite enough for a retirement, without being defered salary.
