Not sure exactly what time the vote is, but should be soon.

Really hoping this is removed and they are paid more.

YANBU! But even if it is removed I still think we'll have a long wait for anything to show up in our payslips!

Why? Teachers and nurses don't have a monopoly on lowo pay?

Ineedagoodusername Wed 28-Jun-17 19:22:31

Agree Stella everyone forgets about social workers who get crap pay.

oldbirdy Wed 28-Jun-17 19:25:35

And local government workers, social workers, police.....

I'm a psychologist employed by an LEA. Haven't had a proper pay rise in 10 years, just 1 percent a couple of times.

Sorry I mean all public sector workers. It's not won tonight sad Soon thought when JC is in power..

SeagullsStoleMyChurro Wed 28-Jun-17 19:44:44

And they didn't sad DUP helped ensure that.

And what percent are the mp's awarding themselves this time? They should Have a freeze

StillDrivingMeBonkers Wed 28-Jun-17 19:58:25

IPSA awards MPs

I'm afraid it was 309 ayes to 323 nays to the removing the cap.

But they could find a billion for DUP .....

harderandharder2breathe Wed 28-Jun-17 20:40:32

Sadly the magic money tree is all tapped out after buying 10 votes for £1billion

I know who i would prefer to have got the money and it's not 10 homophobic, anti-abortion MPs propping up TMs weak government

Even if the cap is removed, the schools, hospitals, etc. get no extra money. They just have to find more money from their dwindling budgets. I'm not saying that public sector workers shouldn't get a pay rise I'm a teacher but the government don't lose anything by voting yes.

Do you realise the cost of even a 1% pay rise? It's estimated at £500 million pounds for NHS staff alone. I'm a nurse and I understand the frustration, but realistically, it all comes at a cost.

Just another example of how Tories can find the money when it is something that benefits them, but to hell with everyone else.

Ineedagoodusername Wed 28-Jun-17 21:25:16

I think the unions need to step up. Tories paid for an election and the DUP pay off yet can't fund a payrise for public sector workers who haven't had a payrise for years.

DancesWithOtters Wed 28-Jun-17 21:26:13

Oh no sad

IDontBowlOnShabbos Wed 28-Jun-17 21:33:41

But how much money does the public sector put into the economy?

How much money is saved by keeping people healthy/alive so they can work?

How much money is saved by keeping people safe and deterring criminal behaviour?

How much money is made by giving people a proper education so they can go on to get a good job and contribute to society?

All this there is no money is complete crap. If we invested enough we would have a richer society. Public services are not a black hole that only benefit a few. It benefits the whole of society!

How much would it cost the Torys in the long run, if the Binmen decided to go on strike in London?

WhereDoesThisRoadGo Wed 28-Jun-17 21:48:04

And civil servants. I have not had a pay rise for 9 years and work 50-60 hour weeks serving the lacking whims of same bastard MPs who just voted not to give us a rise.

God, it feels good to say that 'out loud'.

LurkingHusband Wed 28-Jun-17 22:04:14

Do you realise the cost of even a 1% pay rise? It's estimated at £500 million pounds for NHS staff alone.

That's 0.5 DUP in new money

Groupie123 Wed 28-Jun-17 22:07:37

So when will the private sector employees get a pay rise. Some people have had 0 percent changes for over 5-10 years.

SteamTrainsRealAleandOpenFires Wed 28-Jun-17 22:10:55

mps are public sectors yes?

pottered Wed 28-Jun-17 22:13:18

Let's hope this changes in the Nov budget as is being talked about.

IDontBowlOnShabbos Wed 28-Jun-17 22:16:00

That's a very bitter perspective Groupie. I don't get something so nobody else should.

What job is it you do where you haven't had a pay rise for 10 years?

SteamTrainsRealAleandOpenFires Wed 28-Jun-17 22:21:26

Nowt will change, except that mps will get an extra 1-5% on annual 10% top ups, but everyone will have to get used to another 1-5% pay cut .
