Steve Bundred’s call to freeze public sector pay
The Chief Executive of the Audit Commission, Steve Bundred, has called for a freeze in public sector pay. He makes no exception. Those on the lowest pay and those who earned £212,000 in the year to March 2008 (not including £36,000 contribution to a pension scheme with a transfer value of £916,000) should be treated the same.
I’ve read the article carefully, but I can’t find the bit that calls for those earning more than £100,000 a year to make their contribution to closing the deficit by paying more tax.
