Turn2us responds to Public Sector Pay Announcements



In response to the Governments announcements of a public sector pay rise, Pritie Billimoria, Head of Communications at Turn2us, said:

“Public sector workers have faced years of effective pay cuts while prices have been soaring.

“The proportion of public sector workers receiving financial help from us doubled between 2010 and 2017, showing just how many people are in work but are still financially vulnerable.

“Today’s news will provide genuine relief to some public sector workers.

“However, this is only a short term measure, we need to see a long term pay plan for public sector workers so they can plan for the future and not find themselves relying on crisis support.”
