Okay here’s a question:
How can this government have the gall to tell universities that they will be financially penalized if they don’t implement wage freezes? Sure, they have frozen (some) public sector wages — after their own raises were safely in the bag — but with two giant loopholes: bonuses are still allowed, and the pension plan will be bailed out. Now public universities don’t do bonuses, and we have heard nary a word about any help for our own troubled pensions. So in fact, Shawn Graham is asking universities to take a considerably worse deal than they are offering public sector employees.
How in blue blazes is that fair?
