Another stark example of Apartheidal nature of Irish Society, public sector unions have demanded pay increases to the tune of a mere €1.6 Billion and their obscene pensions are not to be touched!

Give us

I suspect that they will get most of what they want!

You know some people take the view that our public sector are the equivalent of the miners fighting Thatcher, the reality is very much they are grabbing to the last and beggaring everyone else to the last!

Their work shyness is really only outpaced by their insatiable greed and of course their uncanny abilities to get their relations into the system to pig at the trough as well!:mad:

If you support the right of private sector employees to seek improved conditions or rather have conditions restored, why not with the public sector?

It is totally different, we, as a people do not have the vast privileges that public sector workers and have and indeed should not have in the first place such as unsackability. We also have to borrow to pay for them! The list is a very long one!

How do other nations control these pups? The bottom line is if you have a group of 'workers' privileged like this, you don't actually have a society!

The PS trade unions response to the wanton corruption of the PS Gardai is to look for a big pay rise ...

countdown to Patslatt, Patslatt1 or one of his other accounts begins

As you say "I suspect that they will get most of what they want" because, wait for it, I am going to say it, THEY ARE ENTITLED TO IT.......there, I said it. I put it in capitals because Patslatt, Patslatt1 etc loves to reinforce his point (all PS related points) by using capitals
But I say they are entitled to it,in the same way as all workers are entitled to a pay increase, because they are after 10 years of cuts, levies, reductions in terms and conditions, increased productivity, increased hours, reduced leave, increased taxes and increased cost of essentials (insurance, child minding, living accommodation, 3rd level fees, transport costs etc)
So yes, you are right, they will likely get "most of what they want"

Public servants can be sacked. Just not as regular as the private sector, granted. Is that a bad thing, in of itself?

Borrowing these days is cheap. Makes sense to do so rather than take funds from important capital projects. Let inflation take care of the rest.

Here's an idea, given that most public sector posts in particular at admin level, require only junior cert level of abilty and B2 fluency in English, why not recruit public service workers en masse from Eastern Europe and Malta and Cyprus and pay them 30-40% less than the current crop here, whom, they will be displacing!
Hey if it's good enough for private sector workers it's more than good enough for them!

PS leeches really are a disgusting lot.
They have no problem with the country having to borrow another couple of billion to fund their lifestyles and gold plated pensions as long as the hard pressed private sector are paying for it.
This compromised and weak 'government' will cave in too, just like thy did when their police force threatened an illegal strike.....

If the coppers can extort €50 million from the taxpayer by threatening an illegal strike, what's to stop the rest of them?

Public servants can be sacked.
Two gardai have been suspended for the past 7 years, admits Fitzgerald

Two of the 25 gardai currently suspended from duty have been in that position for the past seven years.
Ms Fitzgerald also confirmed a prison officer has been suspended from duty on full pay since July 8, 2010, and has been paid €320,661 in salary to date.
Meanwhile the Garda identified as shagging a porn star on his patrol car hasn't even been suspended.

We can only look on in disbelief. Public service workers want their 'emergency tax' cuts back and are lining up to blackmail the tax paying public.

Well, I want my 'emergency tax' in the form of Universal Social Charge back. Why should we continue to pay this 'emergency tax' when the crisis is over? To feed the insatiable demands of teachers, bus companies & clerks?

Give us back the USC and let people pay taxes for services they actually use like water & sewage......

The more money that is pumped into the sweating grasping arse pockets of these mostly insider gobshytes, the less money that will be spent where it is really needed e.g. in education technology for our schools and diagnostic equpment and healing equipment for our hospitals!
