Debate on pay needs balance

Sir -- Daniel McConnell's article (Sunday Independent, Nov 27, 2011) on public sector pay is just another example of hatchet journalism that only has a place in the tabloid media.
Firstly, the difference in private and public sector pay as mentioned above does not reflect the pension levy applied to public sector employees.
Secondly, to suggest that widespread cuts to all public service departments would fix everyone's problems is absurd.
