    Awww. I do like to see a work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit in young people. Too many are raised to feel entitled.

    They're saying post men should be paid a massive salary in compensation for there being no upward career advancement in their profession. A lot of false assumptions in this line of thinking but you can't blame me: I'm just repeating the irrational views of other people.

    So are people now saying that any job without "advancement" should immediately start out at a very high salary? Are we going to apply this consistently across the whole labour market, or are we exclusively applying this to post men? If it was applied consistently, good luck funding it.

    They should consider their current pay and even a minor increase in comparison to what post men are paid in the UK before complaining.

    That must have made the transition to bar steward much easier.

    Employer pension contributions are part of your salary. That is a fact. Get over it.

    What I find amusing is the criticism of the management and simultaneous praising of unions. Do people not realise it was unions who negotiated the management pay (including employer pension contribution) and conditions????? I'm all for defending front line workers but in the grand scheme of things I reckon unions are a cancer and have been more trouble to the island than they have been worth over the past 40 years.

    Employer pension contributions are part of salary, but they are not immediately accessible so of no relevance to a mortgage application, unless you're near pension age and the income from it might form part of the mortgage payments, though I doubt a bank would give a mortgage in that context unless it was part of some ad hoc financial wizardry by an accountant so a HNWI can reduce their income tax liability. Bringing up mortgage applications is just introducing an irrelevant scenario to this discussion.

    Their pay is their salary and their salary includes employer pension contribution.

    Salary includes employer pension contributions. Fact. She is not at fault for you not being able to grasp that fact. Fact.

    In the private sector, when people talk about a "salary" or "salary package", that INCLUDES employer pension contributions. So when someone says "average salary", they would naturally include the employer pension contribution in the figure. It's very telling that this needs to be explained; it goes to show how many "pundits" on the internet are government workers and have no clue how the real world works.

    No, she didn't even do that. She was talking about total salary package which is not the same as "cost". She told the truth. The truth unfortunately required further clarification due to certain people being obtuse morons looking to score cheap political points.

    But it's complete rubbish. She didn't lie. People are just being deliberately obtuse in order to try to score cheap political points. It's very pathetic and says more about them than it does about her.

    No, I don't recall saying that. He was just an EXAMPLE of it in America. He had peers who also introduced good labour practices because they were Christians and had moral values.

    Sure, and no doubt the same mentalists have, through cynical use of social undermining, censorship, and promotion of lies, probably made sure Julie Edge doesn't get back in. That's their plan, at least, as is obvious to anyone who observes it all. But to quote Robbie Burns: 'The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry. No matter how carefully a project is planned, something may still go wrong with it.'
