Where is the Tax abuse?

Sure the jobs pay ok, but not outrageously so. £130k for a director in the City of London is not really all that much.

To attract compentent people, you have to pay competent money.

On the face of it, you make what sounds like a fair point but ask yourself the following questions.

1. Does the applicant need to be high calibre?

2. Is the job genuinely difficult or does it just sound high powered?

3. Does the employee risk losing his job for poor performance?

4. Does anyone do anything if the employee wastes public funds?

5. Can the applicant use sick leave like holiday entitlement?

6. Can the applicant grab early retirement on grounds of ill health after a couple of years?

7. Is the job being advertised even necessary?

8. If these appointments were given their correct job title (local government clerical officers) would they be offered more than £25K.

If you answer these questions honestly, I am sure you will agree that the phrase 'Tax Abuser' is a valid description.

Looks as if the Treasury have taken the hint and are now attempting to cut back on staffing levels within the public sector. Ain't gonna be easy though...

Civil servants to strike over staff cuts

Do you think that the tax saved by cutting jobs in the public sector will be passed on to the tax payer.

From looking at how big business operates they will keep this money for themselves.

The tax payer will still be paying the same mount of tax and will be getting less in they way of public services.

This was the first thought I had upon waking this morning, how sad is that?
