Check you can Meet your Outgoings before Housebuying!

Two-thirds facing a pay cut or freeze

More than two-thirds of British companies plan to cut or freeze their workers' salaries this year, the British Chambers of Commerce said yesterday, as it warned that private sector employers face a desperate battle to survive the recession.

    No such issue in the public sector as the gravy train ploughs on …towards the buffers of taxpayer revolt!

  • There are public sector workers who work very hard for a pittance, just the same as there are bankers who are a benefit to society

    When the taxpayers revolt they can clean the sheets of their double incontinent granny themselves, catch rats, and empty their own bins
    Not to mention try to teach and maintain law and order

  • If the public sector has expanded as much as has been suggested over the last decade, then you have to think that the nurses, bin men and rat catchers were either really really busy a decade ago, or the additional roles have gone to less hands on staff that one might describe as “dispensable”. Depends which one of those two groups you are referring to.

    I don’t think it’s the rat catchers and bum wipers people get fussed about, it’s the masses of people in non-jobs such as equality co-ordinators and the like, plus the local authority chief execs on £250k a year, with people like heads of planning or transport on £150k, that get me narked

  • The gravy train will grind to a hault and gravy will be spilt.

    Montesquieu – well said. Robh, you’re right there are hundreds of thousands of deserving people working for the state. Unfortunately there are also hundreds of thousands of people hiding away who will never get sacked no matter how shite or lazy they are.

  • Sorry Tyrell, normally agree with most of what you say but two members of my family work in the public sector and neither earn much. I’m sure there are many public servants or private consultants to the govt who are earning a shed load and doing little for it. I’ll post an article above indicating how much the govt are spending are consultants. Granted the claim is by the Tories, but one thing I’ve learnt about this govt is that there is not smoke without fire.
