Saving taxpayers' money

Staff at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and its agencies are staging a one-day strike over "unfair" pay gaps averaging £2,010. The pay gaps should be reduced; by equalising pay downwards.

If Cefas (whoever they are!) are able to recruit administrative officers with a starting salary of £11,474, why should the RPA (whoever they are!) need to offer £15,221 to recruit at the same level?

PCS General Secretary Mark Serwotka should be praised for highlighting this anomaly as it will reduce the future public sector pension liability!
