Many workers in the Public Sector where absenteeism rates are twice that of the Private Sector are being offered cars and holiday vouchers in an effort to get them to improve their attendance records at work.
Well I've got a suggestion for the Chancellor, whoever the next one should be. Let public sector workers know how it is to be SELF EMPLOYED. They should NOT be paid for any days off they take ill, their holidays should be unpaid and there should not be any payments to their index linked pensions on these occasions.
THAT OUGHT TO SAVE US A FEW BOB!
