Nice work if you can get it

Hinckley Times - - LETTERS -

THE fact that High Court judges are up for a mas­sive pay in­crease made me think that MPs prob­a­bly think they are due for an­other one too. By way of jus­ti­fi­ca­tion, they say that you have to pay top salaries to at­tract the best can­di­dates but the re­al­ity is of­ten dif­fer­ent. What you in fact at­tract is the medi­ocrity that could not pos­si­bly com­mand such a high salary in any other walk of life – there is no train­ing and de­vel­op­ment process with pro­gres­sive salary in­creases based on per­for­mance like there is for the rest of us – just the full rate from day 1, not to men­tion the perks (sec­ond home, ex­penses etc) and there is no line man­age­ment struc­ture to which you are ac­count­able on a day to day ba­sis. Nice work if you can get it.
