Here’s what big-hitting public service chiefs are pocketing. You’ll be amazed.

While Australian workers have been struggling to get pay rises or find enough work in recent times, numerous public service big wigs are making close to $1 million.

We are used to reading about the massive salaries paid to fat cats in banking and industry but we don’t hear so much about the public sector.  But at the top end of the bureaucracy they are raking in big dough.

The top public servants get paid far too much taxpayers money – we all know that.
It’s a rort for the communist elites of our country – in our one party communist system.

And they are probably borrowing the money to pay their wages Sad

These people should be lucky to have a job at one tenth of their current salary !

It's just legalized theft Sad

Australia is top heavey with overpayed wordsmiths who produce nothing except bad advice Sad

Absolutely disgusting that the 3 top executives of the worst performing authority APRA earn a combined total of $2.26 million per year.

These bastards like some of the Bank executives should be doing time after the Royal Commission findings.  Angry

The most difficult choice a politician must ever make is whether to be a hypocrite or a liar.

They should contract the jobs out to the lowest bidder.
I would do their job for one third the money.

Then what happens is that KPMG, Deloitte or Ernst and Young maggots get the jobs Sad

Yes they do
The exact same benefits,  that's why they won't take on the pollies for their rorts,  it would affect their perks as well.

They all get paid more than the President of the United States.
We must have the highest paid public servants in the world.

Berby, the Pres of the USA is a license to print money after they retire.

Yup - free travel, fattest super in the land, all the perks apart from office costs around the electorate...

Got a prick relative who's a Deputy Commonwealth DPP on obscene money - does he work that well?  How good is his actual productivity?  Would you trust a lifetime bureaucrat as your barrister in court?  My personal experience of the Commonwealth DPP is that they struggle with facts in a brief... seems they set themselves up to be shot down...

Remember Bob Carr famously said that he ran a great meeting... as if that's all the job required... a sit-down once a week with the underlings...  Roll Eyes

The thing that I find most galling with our grubberment.

Is that they don't trust us and believe we are all dishonest liars.

Then, they want us to believe the blatant lies and trust them???????

If an aeroplane went down into the sea.
And I had but one chance to either save several politicians or a dole bludging, drug addicted thief.
I would save the thief.
Why?

Because there is a slim chance that the thief could turn their life around and do some good in the world.
But no politician ever will consider anyone but him/ herself.

A POX ON THEM ALL.
