The one good thing about the strikes today - no traffic in the morning!
My pension contributions will go up by 2% from January 2012 and by a further 2% from January 2013, so effectively doubling in two years.
My 'perks/benefits' eg medical and gym have all been downgraded and I shall not be getting a pay rise next year. So, I'm paying more for my pension and more for my gym membership with no pay rise to absorb the extra...
No, of course I don't work for the public sector. I have to like this or lump it.
Welcome to the real world, strikers - there is just not enough money in the pot so we ALL have to pay more!
