Re: Three cheers for Mark Prisk

As far as I can gather, public sector pay is still about 10% higher than private sector pay - even weighted for job type.

Re: Calling all 1950s born women - WASPI campaign

The linked web page does indeed claim to be supportive of equality with men. But equality with men is the end-game of what they are protesting about !
