Soap star calls for public sector wage increases

By Alan Jones

Former Dynasty actress Stephanie Beacham has added her voice to a union campaign to give millions of public sector workers a pay rise.

She appears in a film by Unison which praises the dedication of employees but criticises the Government's "hypocritical" attitude to their pay.

She said: "I wanted to do this film because I find it deeply unacceptable that public service staff who keep us safe, look after us when we're ill and keep our local services running haven't seen a pay rise in seven years.

"Our public service workers deserve more than a measly pat on the back, they need substantially more money in their pockets."
