I think the PSA should accept the government's current wage offer for the following reasons:
1. If the offer was made back in June, everyone would have been more than happy with the increases.
2. More importantly the figures given by the government officials is affordable to us tax payers (you, me and everyone else) and there should be no reason to increase taxes, at least for a while.
3. Salaries etc. should then be regularly checked say every 2 or 3 years to keep up with inflation.
4. We all need to urgently work together to put this unpleasantness behind us and look to the future with a more positive outlook.
