Letter: Balance the council budget by sacking £100k earners

More news, no ads


SIR – Your editorial on Friday 11th June about Hampshire County Council having a budget shortfall is very easily solved.

Around 60 of its employees are being paid more than £100,000 a year. According to the Office for National Statistics, the average wage in the UK for 2020 was just over £30,000 per annum.

How these council employees feel they can justify these grossly overpaid salaries is a mystery.

The way to deal with the reduction in central government grant to local councils is to sack every second one of the people who are paid over £100,000 in HCC and spend the money on services for the taxpaying public.
