Heather Wakefield on Council Workers' Pay

A quick plug for another blog.

Heather Wakefield, UNISON's National Secretary for Local Government has written about the current pay negotiations for council staff on the Public Finance website. You can find it here.

Well worth a read for anyone who wants to know the real facts about council workers' pay. One sentence in the last paragraph of her piece gives the most food for thought. It's reproduced below.

"After all, who could really say that a Goldman Sachs trader is worth more than those who feed and educate children, house the homeless and care for the vulnerable elderly?"
