Public / Private Pay Comparison

November 29, 2011 7:29 PM

Public sector workers receive generous remuneration, which is paid for by workers in the private sector who get less in pay and benefits. As unions prepare to strike over proposed pensions changes, we're releasing a new online calculator that allows private sector workers to assess how their total remuneration compares to that enjoyed by public sector workers.

If you are a private sector employee, enter your details using the sliders on the left to find out your total remuneration, and you can view the salaries of public sector employees who have the same total remuneration package as you.

The calculations predate planned changes in Government policy - such as the shift from RPI to CPI - showing the system as it currently is, and which the unions are striking to defend.
