Race to the bottom.

You would say that.
Why should a civil servant in Sunderland earn the same as one in Milton Keynes. The cost of living in the Northeast is lower.
(, Thu 12 Apr 2012, 16:06, Reply)
Because they're doing the same job.
Exactly the same job, with the same interviews, requirements, policys, systems, experience required etc.

And you're talking about people on 18-30k a year effectivly getting a pay cut while all the high earners are exempt. Stupid.

Taxpayers money innit.
Easy saving for the govt - popular with everyone who isn't a civil servant. Lowest common denominator politics.

What's the difference between the above and London Weighting?
(, Thu 12 Apr 2012, 16:17, Reply)
London weighting was because the wage of a lot of NHS staff was below the living wage for NHS staff in london.
It's the difference between topping up and pulling down.
I don't agree with the london weighting, I think it would be much better to have more available and affordable Key housing within the M25.

But it's there to offset the difference in the cost of living.
So what's the difference between that and paying less in cheaper areas?
(, Thu 12 Apr 2012, 16:22, Reply)
Because most of these poor cunts earn fuck all as it is.

That's not the point.
The point is whether you should earn less in cheaper parts of the country.

Because it's based on the principal of everyone struggling the same amount
not everyone being as comfortable as each other. And that from ultimatly an employer is callous and immoral.

What do you want then?
100 an hour?

There are better paid jobs, try and get one.

If nurses were all living in Mansions in Blackburn maybe they'd have a point.

Don't be a fucking nurse then.

An awful lot of people are taking that advice.

Don't get me wrong
it's a piss poor indictment of where our priorities lay but if the money isn't enough, do something else.

The government do a very good job of presenting the whole of the public sector as hate figures
They like to cherry pick the information so that people think that across the board all public sector workers have the holidays of teachers, the pay of council leaders, the pension of Fred Goodwin, etc. I DONT GET THESE PERKS IN MY PRIVATE SECTOR JOB SO WHY SHOULD THEY???
(, Thu 12 Apr 2012, 16:21, Reply)
I don't get these perks yet I pay for yours.

I bet you've got a good accountant who ensures that you don't.

The private sector is mostly paye so no ,not really

PAYE me. I pay a fucking fortune in tax and NI.

Good.

I don't begudge it (like I have a choice)
but I think I am entitled to ask to see some value.

You are entitled to a vote every five years
Which may or may not have some bearing on who makes some of the decisions on how it is spent. That is all.
(, Thu 12 Apr 2012, 16:30, Reply)
Maybe.

(, Thu 12 Apr 2012, 16:33, Reply)
Also, public sector workers pay tax and NI too.
They may not be able to draw much of it back as pensions though.
(, Thu 12 Apr 2012, 16:31, Reply)
They'll draw back more than I will.

Yes you do. Jimmy fucking Hill old son.
