We need reverse benchmarking

Sir --It is my belief that what Ireland now needs is a return to benchmarking to reduce public sector wages back down to match their counterparts in the private sector. Why should we suffer reduced services as public sector numbers are reduced while their pay remains excessively high? Would it not be better for all to maintain employee numbers and services, but at a reduced wage?
