EXCLUSIVE: Government figures value public sector contribution to economy at £130 billion a year!!!!

According to Government calculations, the strikes over public sector pensions on 30th Novermber will cost the UK £500million (LINK).

That is just for a single day’s strike.

So let me see….  if I multiply that figure by 5 (for five working weekdays in a week) I get £2.5 billion…

And if I multiply that by a further 52 (52 weeks in a year) I get a whopping… wait for it… £130 billion!!!!

Given the value of public sector workers to our economy, maybe the Government should work harder to negotiate and maintain a peaceful relationship with them, rather than the bullying and antagonistic approach that we see them adopting today. The Government should value the role of public sector workers and the contribution that they make to our economy and respect them, rather than vilify them.… after all they have done the maths themselves.
