Don't criticise public sector

Published 20/06/2014

One of your correspondents mentions the NI pay level in the public sector as if it is something to be vilifed. Does he not realise this is considered to be a relatively low level of pay in mainland UK?

As a retail worker who "enjoys" receiving minimum wage I can tell you I'm envious of those who receive fair remuneration and a pension, but I wouldn't want them to drop to below a "living wage" to make the statistics look better.
