David Readman's curator insight, October 16, 2014 10:13 AM

It used to be that generous pensions in the public sector had to offset low salaries. That easy distinction has become blurred in recent years however.

Which of us would readily accept below inflation pay increase over a number of years without a serious argument - I know I wouldn't.

What really makes it worse is that it is politicians telling the NHS workers what we can't afford.

It does indeed come down to a question of raising taxes or cutting services

However, I am not surprised that the world is not sharing their information about mental health. ~AW~
