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

Try including you employer’s pension contributions in your answer next time a mortgage application asks for your annual salary.

It was put out as 33k to drum up a bit of outrage amongst the plebs. It worked with the baggage handlers and the bus drivers/cleaners. Let's not get tied up in bullshit here. That said, maybe not as a deliberate ploy by her, perhaps she was being played too.

Postal worker 26k, Police starter 20k.

How often do you get a letter?   How often do you need a Policeman?

Value!

Probably one earning way in excess of £33,000

That’s the main point I’ve drawn from the public statements so far; whether the salary reported is strictly accurate or not. Even the lower starting salary (£26K) is a lot higher than jobs that come with a hell of a lot more responsibility (police, nursing, teaching etc)

There isn't the same progression though is there?

Why should progression matter? You’re paid to take responsibility. A copper might get stabbed, a nurse might save a life, a good teacher might transform a life - but the worst a postie is going to do is stick an envelope through the wrong letterbox. I don’t see how it justifies a higher starting salary than a teacher, policeman or nurse career progression or not.

It's the not needing them(Police) that is mostly their value if you stop and think about it.

Apparently there is a lot of mail stacked up, but the posties that struck will not get any overtime just the ones that stayed loyal.

Policemen too busy nicking kids with a bit of blow when you really need them.

I always think that when they're complaining of understaffing. It kind of undermines the case somewhat.

I wonder what the incentive is for nicking people with small amounts of Mary Jane?

The police don't make the laws, they just do their best to uphold them.

Nah...she’s thick enough to fuck it up unaided.
