|PAUL STEPHENSON WHO EARNS £280,000 DISCUSSES HIS INVESTMENTS WITH THERESA MAY|
More than 9,000 public sector employees earn more than the Prime Minister, according to most comprehensive analysis of state pay levels ever undertaken.
In a stark illustration of the financial rewards available to workers in the NHS, schools and police forces, the study found a total of 9,187 earning more than the £142,500 paid to David Cameron. There are also 38,000 who earn more than £100,000 a year.
38,000 earning more than £100k in the public service! Plus their pensions, annual leave and sick days. Fucking unbelievable. Ah, but they will tell us, we could be earning more in the private sector. My answer to that would be, well go and do it. BTW, you're banned from using any influence from your current employment in your new one. See how many companies want you then.
The same should go for politicians. Pay MPs, £40k and see how many of them want to go into PUBLIC SERVICE! OK, give them a decent pension to compensate, based on the number of years service. It would also bring down wages in the private sector, which would mean companies paying more tax and there would be a knock on in the housing market. Anyone earning over £100k in wages, shares, bonuses etc, should be paying 75% tax on their earnings over the £100k. Time we returned to normality!
