Example: £3k take home pay and £2k outgoings. 10% increase in outgoings is £200. 10% payrise is £300. In act only an increase of 6.7% is needed to take care of the increase in outgoings. The problem is that as someone above has alluded to, people are spunking every penny and racking up debt and expecting the government to step in and protect them. That is simple not sustainable or reasonable. In fact it's rank entitlement. It's also fascinating to see that not one of those screaming for a huge pay rise has had the decency to suggest what public services should be cut to pay their rises. That tells us everything we need to know about their true socialist credentials. To summarise, people that don't have a grand spare every month must be spunking money and have no right to ask for fair pay for skilled work because they work in the public sector. I disagree. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
