About this book


This book examines the procedures for determining the pay of public sector workers in six European Countries: France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden and the UK. It reveals how rates of pay in the public sector compare to those in the private sector of each country and how the pay structure is, in all cases, quite different in the two sectors. The book also provides an explanation for the differences in pay between the sectors distinguishing the role played by the quite different institutions for setting public sector pay in the six countries.
