Thread: Public sector workers - again

  1. #1

    Public sector workers - again

    Pension this, time off on lieu that. Taking sickness as part of their holiday entitlement. Then moaning they should get more than 1% pay rise. It should be reduced by 10% a year until these 'what's it in it for me' shirkers start performing. If they worked in the private sector they would have a major wake up call. Not all of them but most public sector are shirkers. Gggggrrrrrr

    Re: Public sector workers - again

    There's too many who perceive public sector workers as flabby middle management tea-swilling layabouts who do next to feck all for 30 years before waddling off with a juicy final salary pension aged 55. Yeah, there's loads of excess desk jockeys but the majority do valuable work. They are being robbed with continuous below inflation pay rises every year.

    Look butt, someone has to do it and for the salary they pay me my job and life really is a piece of piss. Thanks for the suggestions though, I'll pass that point of view over whilst laughing at you hysterically and slurping a beer in the pub on a brunch meeting next week (That's called multi tasking by the way). You gotta take work out of the office it's good for moral.

    Up the workers, comrade.

    Re: Public sector workers - again

    Best thing about the government public sectors cut backs is there is plenty of overtime for those that kept their jobs.
    Mrs Hartley is in today for 8 hours time and half and 8 hours tomorrow double time. An extra 28 hours pay for 16 hours work.

    Re: Public sector workers - again

    Always makes me laugh when the shirkers tag gets thrown at public sector workers. I've worked in the private sector for my 24 year working life and seen more than my fair share of lazy, tea swilling, chit chatting bastards.


    I'd imagine the OP to be a work shy ****er. The type of bloke complaining about "bloody foreigners taking our jobs" yet never done a days work in his life

    Re: Public sector workers - again

    So what line of work are you in Watcliff? Do you think doctrs and nurses are shirkers? I bet you don't have the balls to say this sort of stuff directly to someone who works in the pubic sector.

    Re: Public sector workers - again

    while we all know a good % of the public sector are hard working and deserve better

    the " lazy, tea swilling, chit chatting bastards " as J R H so eloquently put it do wind people up, if you have every worked in the public sector, you will have seen them, they know jobs are protected ( or used to be ) and they do take the pee, The Vale ( and cardiff ) council had offices of them, doing not very much and happy in the knowledge that management wouldnt touch them and in year past they had " something on " the management

    of course, the hardworkers see this happening and the rot set in, work ethics dive, as why should Bob work his arse of if John is doing fook all

    Unions digging their heals in over credible cuts in the workforce I think is the main sticking point.

    I think it's fair to say Teachers, Nurses, Police Officers, Probation Officers in this day and age will thank you for your references copied and pasted from the Daily mail messageboard in regards to lazy tea swilling bastards.

    A qualifying paragraph at the start of your post doesn't disguise your contempt.

    My comment was aimed at people I've worked with in the private sector Matt.

    My point being a shirker is a shirker wether he / she works in either sector.

    There's workers and shirkers in every industry regardless of sector.

    Re: Public sector workers - again

    Whether it's private or public sector, there are lazy bastards in both camps who let their respective industries down. My wife works in the public sector but as people are leaving, they are not being replaced, and the work left is shared amongst those left behind. Very rarely does my wife get home from work and not go on her laptop to complete some work. Don't tar everybody in the public sector with the same brush and if you can't beat em,join em.

    While there is undoubtedly inefficiency in the public sector that one would ideally like to see removed, the majority of it is hardworking people who want to do the best for their communities and are being asked to do more and more with less and less.

    Still as I'm looking over Cardigan Bay in my cottage, with a sauvignon blanc in hand and wondering to whether or not 'work from home' on Monday (the traffic on a Sunday from West Wales can be a nightmare), I'll reflect on Watcliffs opinion of me, my job and my productive output and not give one flying ****.

    Up the workers.

    Oh how selfishly lovely for you. Voluntary work is much more rewarding than wallowing in your perceived idol success, give it a try?

    Hark at David Cameron here advocating the big society bollocks. Voluntary work, isn't it for those who can't get a job and looking for experience.

    One of Thatchers kids me, free market, get what you can, exploit it to the maximum then bragg about it constantly.

    I hope that halo you're wearing pays off.

    Up the workers.

    no contempt from me, i have only posted about my experience in the local council, no copy and pasting be it from the Daily Mail or any other news outlet

    i am pretty sure people on here know how much i respect our Police, Nurses and Teachers ( I will add armed forces into that list aswell ) , not sure about probation officers, never had any dealings with them or known any

    my mistake, though my post about the local council still stands

    I have also worked for both the Public and Private sector, imho you get found out and binned a little quicker in the Public sector

    Maybe I read it wrong and I was In a shut mood earlier. So 👍

    Whoever said it about people leaving these services ( I'm one for example ) and not being replaced has got it spot on. He probantion service is an example of that .

    the public sector is going to the dogs, trust me with the lack of staff I'm amazed they're hasn't been more serious repurcussions.

    Re: Public sector workers - again

    Lots of the old probation service is now in the private sector (about 70%). Hows that working out?

    Just saying.

    Particulary dreadful. Case loads in excess of 50 peapple, phone in type appointments and that murder in Rest Bay was a tragic example of people it being managed properly.

    The public sector version is in trouble but slightly less numbers per case manager.

    Although with the national probantion service the type of offender is classified as a higher risk.

    Great job for 220000 a year start off.....not

    Free market spirit and everything in the private sector will improve all service quality and reduce costs though mate.

    There's no way we'd be paying for people who do **** all and milk their industry for millions in salary and more in 'bonuses' which means more expense to the consumer.

    Oh hang on...

    Watcliff the poor, simple misguided, daily mail reading ****wit just hasn't got a scooby. The fact he can't see a bite speaks ****ing volumes about the empty headed plum.
