Join the rest of the real world

Re: Don’t blame the transit workers, Nov. 22.

If ever there was conclusive proof of the callowness and ignorance of government employees spoken of in previous letters, it came in the Nov. 22 edition. When I read the opening line of the letter from a public sector employee bemoaning the fact that he has only received three pay raises in the last ten years, I almost spat my coffee across the room. Honestly, I thought it was a joke.

What Mr. Pullan conveniently neglected to mention, is that as a public sector worker, he and his colleagues make on average over 30 per cent more than workers doing the same jobs in the private sector.

The letter was nothing more than an indictment of the culture of entitlement and complete incomprehensiveness of the economy that the public sector breeds. It?s downright disgusting. It’s time for all government employees to pull their heads out of the sand, open their eyes and join the rest of us in the real world.
