Not sure exactly what time the vote is, but should be soon.
Really hoping this is removed and they are paid more.

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.

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!

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
