Public sector pay rises in line with private sector says ONS

12 Oct 2010, by Guest in Labour market

According to the Office for National Statistics, public sector pay rose in line with private sector pay over the past year.  The appearance of much faster rises in the public sector – so noisily protested by the right-wing tabloids and think-tanks – is almost entirely due to the nationalisation of Lloyds and RBS and distortions in the way data was collected (now changed by ONS).  Somehow, though, I doubt the Mail and the Telegraph will be splashing this particular story across their front pages.
