The latest figures confirm the public-private sector pay gap:
Information released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) yesterday revealed that public sector workers are paid on average 7.8% more than their private sector counterparts. This figure has risen by 2.5% since 2007, when the pay gap was estimated to be around 5.3%.
And an index-linked, final salary pension to boot!
Forgive me if I don't weep beef tea at the plight of public sector workers.
