Hattie Does Her Bit For Deficit Reduction

Capture

Harriet Harman is looking to take on a new Parliamentary Assistant. Fresh-faced, budding bag-carriers have however been disappointed by the paltry salary on offer. IPSA decree that the minimum salary for a London-based Parliamentary Assistant – a mid-ranking job which is senior to a secretary or even a senior caseworker – should be £23,000-a-year. Penny pinching Hattie is offering just £19,000, a wage more typical of a junior caseworker or junior secretary. At last Labour embrace “the cuts”…

UPDATE: As has been pointed out by many of our right-on readers, assuming a 40-hour week, that is less than the “Living Wage”.
