The public is everybody's employer. They pay everybody's wages.BTW, public is their employer ....
Best wishes to all in the PS who begin their action to halt the abuse by their employer today.
How come those in the private sector that got a pay cut aren't on strike? .....maybe because they live in the real world.
1) They never bothered to organise a trade union branch in their place of employment.Answer the question
I quite like the capitalist system, but you're totally right. This isn't about reform or improving the state's services, it's purely about the pay for their members.If the PS unions were carrying out this action to overthrow the capitalist system I'd support them 100%, but I fear they are only looking out for their own members' slice of the capitalist cake - which they have no intention of changing.
I know that if you tried to be a union in an accountancy firm you'd either be laughed out of it or never get a promotion.Possibly because they're not allowed by their Employers?? Anyone know if you can be a member of a trade Union in say, McDonalds,or say, Ryanair? And, if you CAN be in a union in either of these companies, will your Union be recognised by such companies?
Or do they not count as Private sector?
Why can't you understand that PS didn't cause this mess? Private sector banking, development and Government leaders caused it.The accountancy firm I used to work for had a 10% cut to everyone's salary, even receptionist or trainee accountants who I am guessing were on about 25k.
Most of the firms did the same .........oh, and they let people go.
Nobody in the business world would go on strike because they understand business, less money in means less wages.
Why can't the PS understand basic numbers?
