    Most public sector workers are still expecting a pay rise in 2010, despite the impending clampdown on earnings in the sector, a survey has found.

    The public sector has been insulated from the worst of the recession, but a 1% cap on wage rises is now planned.

    But according to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development survey, most public sector workers still expect a pay rise of 2% in 2010.

    Workers in private firms predicted that their pay will rise by 3% next year.



    Rising pay, rising house prices, what ******* recession!

    Didn't that happen in 1978?

    The only thing I remember people noticing were rubbish being uncollected and the dead not being buried.

    Presumably all the councils have outsourced refuse collection now so that won't be a worry.

    1 million extra civil servants under labour...and little to show for it in tangible improvements - elf and safety, green advisors, inspecting your recycling bins are all boomed!

    Big part of it is interest repayments. Also there is PFI. And huge contributions to pension funds of already and soon to retire civil servants.

    Also, I'd say extra cost of stuff on top of £20k salary for civil servant is much greater than his/her salary.

    Aye. This is now done in one round.

    Bummer if you die the day after your bins are collected.
