Workers in the public sector are more than 40pc better off - Telegraph

When calculated on an hourly basis, the typical state employee earns up to 35 per cent more than his counterpart in the private sector, the report finds. But when the more generous pensions for state employees are taken into account, the advantage rises to 43 per cent.

To be fair, the public sector has outsourced most of its low-paid jobs to the private sector. This skews the figures a lot.
