Had it easy
No one wants to hear that they are not getting a pay rise, but to be honest, some public sector workers have had it easy compared to private sectors. Many people who I know that work in private sectors haven’t had pay rises for two years or more, others have had to take 10 per cent pay cuts while all along public sector workers have been getting rises. Unfortunately, public sector is only now just catching up with what has been happening in the private sector for some time. Those that say they are going to leave and get private sector jobs – don’t presume you’ll get a pay rise every year! you might even have to work harder for your money!
