We don’t trust you
And who would???
You say we can’t afford it.
The pensions are gold plated.
People working for the private sector.
They don’t get as good as this.
Well, there’s the rub.
So we have to be treated as badly as they are??
and lest we forget
Odd how little Francis Maude talks about rhodium-plated pensions
The irresponsibility of public sector workers has been laid bare by an MP who really knows about taxpayer-funded excess
And so to a mere taster of their perks. Just 15 years' work could build up a pension of £24,000, a recent FT assessment noted, whereas private sector employees would have to amass £700,000 to generate the same income when they retire at 65. Taxpayers contribute three times more to this group's pensions than its members do themselves. And should they die, their spouses receive a lump sum of four times their annual salary, and an annual income of five-eighths of their pension.
When they return to the gold plated delights of an average £3-4000 pension we might begin to take this seriously. Although for fifteen years work it would be a lot less I suspect.
