“Public pay restraint, especially for the top earners”

More council fat cats than two years ago

My title is taken from what the "Three Chancellors" promised the other night. But the pay restraint is concentrated in the low pay levels. Do councils have to mirror the private economy, where globalisation increases income inequalities, because "we're competing with the private sector for the best people". I don't think so, and neither does Sean O'Grady (see his piece in the 'Related articles' link.)
