Unrealistic or not, folks are free to move jobs as they see fit and the last time I looked wage rises in the private sector are running two/three times higher than the public sector. One of the few ways Governments can rein in public expenditure is to keep wages lower in the public sector, but let’s not kid ourselves that ‘choice’ doesn’t impact on industrial relations and the recruitment and retention of staff. You quite often bemoan that nothing works properly in this country anymore.It is indeed about choices but also unrealistic expectations on the part of too many people. Plenty of private sector workers are taking below inflation rises and if they ask for too much there won’t be a job.
Plenty of small businesses employing folk that are struggling and even on the point of collapse.
Ever thought this is why?
