Why should any individual have the details of their pay/t&cs in the public domain
because its my money and I want to see how it is being wasted
because something has to be ( seen to be) done about the obscene level of rewards - salary, pensions, holidays etc that abound at the top of the public sector...rewards that never seem to carry the penalty of poor performance that is the norm in the private sector at this level, whilst the poor bloody infantry get not much more than the minimum wage and have to work until they are 65 or older before they get their miserable state pension
Again, the terms and conditions are a matter for the individual and their employer. Whether that is the state or not is broadly irrelevant. If you have an issue with the terms and conditions that state employees get, then lobby against it by all means. I draw no distinction between the infantry, who sign up for their terms and conditions like any other employed person, and Ms Shoesmith. Both have contracts of employment which by definition have been agreed.
£11k per month for a senior management position would not be unusual in other professions, state owned banks for instance.
