Council Tax

Recommended Posts


That's because the poll tax was a personal tax and the council tax is a household tax.

Try re-comparing household to household, allowing for around 30 years of inflation.

It ain't cheap. 

Relatively, I seem to remember that I paid very little in Poll Tax. It seemed to suit me better financially. 

 

My job in the private sector has direct comparisons with similar positions in the councils sector.  I'd expect a pay drop of around £15000 per year if I had to jump over to a council job.  Remember the struggle that female council workers had for pay parity.  Police officers, with a much lower bar to clear for entry, have a higher starting wage than council-employed teachers.

In general, council workers don't get paid very well compared to their counterparts in the public sector, they do have better pensions and used to have better job security.

No. I thought it was bollocks, and not for similar work.
