Have automatic salary increments also been frozen?
If not, won't this result in many or even most public servants coming out about even over the year?
Since the pension levy is tax deductable, it'll cost most public servants, what, %5 or less?
And annual increments are what on average, a tad shy of of 5%?
Well at least that's it looks like for the junior Clerical Officer that everyone is so concerned about.
I'm sure either my arithmetic or reasoning on this will be shot down in quick order. But please don't go pulling the heart-strings for those on LS2 at the top of their scale. Seeing all the beal-bochting was based on the young CO/teacher/guard/nurse just starting out.
