Private vs public sector
Aug 24, 2011 – The latest surreal installment in Operation Daily Express Mindfuck. “Hard-pressed workers in the private sector” now have a focus for their feelings of anger and frustration (which are understandable given the long hours, low pay, poor conditions, poor benefits, poor holiday entitlement, idiot bosses, soul-crippling corporate ideology, etc).
“Millions” of them can now feel “infuriated” at their fellow hard-pressed workers in the public sector who apparently don’t have the “curbs on their pay” that private sector workers have.
Where is all the taxpayer money going? The Express reveals the “infuriating” truth: public sector workers will continue to receive “annual ‘increments’ – salary increases given to recognise the length of a worker’s service”.
The private sector, on the other hand, is responsibly exercising “restraint”, by putting “curbs” on workers’ pay. The quīnta essentia of bullshit.
