I can see your point but should the women just give up, when there is still money wasted? As for your other point, the Prime Minister is on a lot less in terms remuneration! It would be interesting as to what councils have in terms of valuable paintings etc, some of which are stored away? I'm sure there was a TV programme on the subject.
I accept that cutting the bigger salaries will not cut the liability, it's simply the injustice. Hasn't it been said that executive pay is going up excessively whereas the ordinary workers are bearing the brunt of the downturn? You don't see too many executives marching in protest!
Anyhow, the legal wrangling will continue.
Are council salaries excessive? I've never looked into it to be honest, on the face of it they don't strike me as being to bad when compared to what those in the private sector earn for running similar sized organisations.
The prime ministers salary always seems to me to be a red hearing given what being in that job does to there future earning potential!
I'm not sure cutting the wages of those you deem to be over paid council execs and selling a few paintings is going to raise whats needed to settle past injustices. My concern would be that these liabilities will be settled to the detriment of those in the here and now and dare I say it when your cutting things like library services, sure start services etc etc to make up for budget short falls you’ll disproportionately discriminate against women who, certainly in my experience use these services far more than men.
