They’ve been lucky

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

WEll that “Black Day” dawned for many of us in the com­mer­cial sec­tor back in the sum­mer of 2007 when the sub prime mort­gage mar­ket crashed and the credit crunch started. The pub­lic sec­tor ought to think it­self lucky that it has been pro­tected for the past three years. In the com­mer­cial sec­tor we’ve been wor­ry­ing about our jobs, worked hun­dreds of un­paid hours over­time, seen no pay rises, and dou­bled our work loads as there have been re­cruit­ment freezes. The sick leave seen in Peter­bor­ough among pub­lic ser­vice work­ers has been as­tro­nom­i­cal. Dou­ble that of the pri­vate sec­tor. Wel­come to the real world and get used to it. It’s not nice but hey.
