Suffolk workers are not highly paid (last year 40% of all workers in Suffolk were paid less than £17,000 a year – and £17000 is over £8500 LESS than the national average wage. A tenth of Suffolk workers were paid £6000 or less) .
Modest salaries indeed – except when it comes to the eye-wateringly high salaries dished out to the top execs at Suffolk County Council. Just to remind you, the Chief Executive is paid £230.000 per annum, plus pension and expenses. Suffolk County Council leader Jeremy Pembroke’s rationale: “The people who live in Suffolk need and deserve the very best.”
The more you pay, the better quality you get?
Yes of course Jeremy. Wasn’t Fabio Capello the best paid manager in this year’s World Cup?
