People Management;7/16/2009, Vol. 15 Issue 15, p8
The author comments on the pay increases in Great Britain in the first six months of 2009. He says that across the private sector, pay increases between industrial sectors reflect the uneven impact of the economic recession. He cites the IDS Pay Databank which shows a median pay increase of two percent across the economy for 2009. He believes that it would be ridiculous for an urban myth on the private sector as the basis of policy for the public sector.
