The article then went on to to say how the council’s Chief Executive John Mothersole is taking a 5% pay cut from his £184,588 per annum wage.
Yes, that’s right: £184,588 a year, £3,549 per week, plus a fat pension and expenses.
All this for an executive of a council that is tax payer-funded, probably answers to nobody and produces not very much at all. Big wages for non-producing, public funded organisations like this should be capped.
Does anybody else find this excessive or is it just me who is out of touch?
