Attacks on PS workers are continuing. Today the EU Commission, vis the Bundestag (or vice versa) has called for reductions in PS pay rather than cutting numbers.
That strategy is in effect a call for another tax on PS workers to fund services that we all use. Apart from being unfair it's also unworkable. Further pay cuts will transfer costs from the pay budget to the SW budget through the FIS system. They will also drive out PS workers who will be able to earn more in other sectors/countries.
