    15% is step in the right direction but what about the details? Have deductions for pension and national insurance remained or been suspended so that the net salary reduction reduction is Nil? So no reduction at all, but increased costs in later years to be picked up by the private sector when the Government funds run down. Disgraceful deceit.

    Government are jokers. Workers have had to get by on $500.00, if they received it at all. And it is proudly shared 12?%, 15% reduction in salaries by Government and ministers. Why don,t you work with $500.00 every two weeks n without insurance, HIP or Major Medical. If for the people live like the people.
