15 weeks holiday a year & Gold plated defined benefit pension. Maybe we should all strike for equality with the teachers. Ooops - sorry , I forgot, most of us have to live in the real world.

Many public sector workers are on incremental scales, meaning automatic pay rises annually until they reach top of the scale.
Trouble is, everyone these days has got used to pay increases each year. When I started work (public sector) if you wanted a pay increase you had to be promoted, get an extra qualification or go and ask your boss (or, possibly, go and get a different job)
