The Public Sector


Recommended Posts

Have any public sector employees experienced financial difficulties/job losses from Covid or have they been unfairly shielded from the impact and enjoyed a cut in expenditure from commuting?

The financial cost is being borne by the productive sector through job losses, reduced furlough pay and businesses collapsing.

Should the public sector take a pay cut to help out?

I will bet my last fiver that not a single person presenting with long Covid is self employed.

It's causing a lot of resentment on Twitter #fullpaywankers   - the strongest advocates of lockdown are those who aren't affected by lockdown.

I was always able to make myself unpopular when colleagues were faced with redundancy by suggesting that they could save jobs if everyone took a pay cut.

The Great Divide!

Apparently NHS workers are still exhausted from the first wave. Choreographing dance routines for social media because most of them had nothing to do, must be more tiring than expected.

I have been quote vocal on twitter calling out the insanity of the lockdown. 

It hurts the poorest by far the largest, everyone that wants one is sure they will still be paid

Bins not emptied again today.  That's another three week wait.  No point filling in the online form.  Did that last time and no response.  I'm not asking for a visit, just them to action their systems from afar.  Presumably at home on full pay paid by those stuck at home without full pay or even without a job.  Yet another total p*ss take.  Work or get furloughed.  End of.

Look forward to NOT seeing you in the New Year

Let us not forget it's not just what we think of a public sector (councils, schools, services...), there are a whole raft of organisations funded entirely by the taxpayer such as in the 'third sector' often receiving funding in order to help communities, whilst pushing the politically correct agendas of the day.

The myriad of Quangos never met their bonfire either.

The one that drives me nuts is the exhausted nurse just off a 12 hour shift 

They chose to do this to get their working week into 3 days a week , then have loads of days off or fleece the NHS doing bank work 😡

Very true and I used to rip the piss out of the nurses that did this ie shouldn’t you be saveing the nhs but to be fair to them they were general nurses ie useful all our lot were mental health nurses .ive seen shit loads of money wasted carting people off to be superglued at a real hospitle and they can’t even do a fucking catheter.but a general

nurse is normaly qualified I remember one night a new guy was admitted on a pump feed not a single nightshift nurse knew how it operated the daft cunt was basicly trying starve himself to death .then someone says wasn’t mark trained in it at his old place .so im

Teaching 3 nurses how it works .the office got wind of this a sent a nurse in off days to show them aparently I wasn’t good enough but she allowed me to be in the room .im like that’s correct she says I’ve been trained I’m like can you actualy change the peg she says no a district nurse does that I’m like give me a shout if it deflates I can do that has well lol

I knew a female nurse that worked with autistic patients. She was always wearing bruises.

According to her, in the old days, any violent patients soon learned that there were big tough guys that could and would hurt them more than they could hurt anybody else. They were not crazy enough to get second helpings of that.

In my experience of visiting relatives in various different hospitals over the years the nurses never really give the appearance of being rushed off their feet and worked into the ground.

The set up in the big general hospitals seems to be a central nurses station with a number of wards radiating off it and there usually seems to be about 5 nurses on duty at any one time, with 1 or 2 of them doing the rounds administering to patients whilst the other 3 or 4 will just be sat around the central station chatting.

That would be my dad then. He worked in a mental hospital for a long time. Patients that got too gippy went to the "special" hospital, where they weren't allowed out.

In the spirit of the public sector, can people please wait at least a week before responding to other posts in this topic. Don’t forget to add a Covid disclaimer.

I used to live in a house at the end of a turning area. The second time they forgot my bin I complained and a scowling bloke came the next day in a smaller wagon and picked it up. Every week after that all the other bins were left on the pavement  outside the house they belonged to but most of the time I had to go fetch mine from the far side of the turning area. It must have had a black mark on it, only visible to a dustbin man's eye.

A few Christmases ago a Postie colleague of mine was delivering to one of his regular customers, a large rural house where the post box was built into the stone gatepost, on top of the gatepost this particular morning was a bottle of expensive Whisky and a card, as he took them he saw the homeowner watching him from the kitchen window so he gave her a cheery wave of acknowledgment for the generous gift.

Later that day back home he cracked open the bottle and opened the card.... ''To our wonderful binmen, Thank you for doing such a great job''

As a postie I tend to learn where any of the local councillor bigwigs live, it's always noticeable how much extra care and attention the binmen make on any road where the councillors live, always putting the bins neatly back in the driveways, picking up anything that spills out of the recycling etc

I always thought the postie was supposed to receive presents via the sorting office rather than accept things whilst out on his round
