Well, perhaps this is the same offer that anyone else joining at the same time would have got but:
Under the BBC pension schemes, which allow staff to retire at 50, the corporation pays in about three times the amount paid in by employees.
Three to one employer payments? Retire at 50? Sheesh.
You might just about understand the low retirement ages for, say, footballers (45 I think they can draw their pension?) or firemen, but what\’s the argument for the BBC? The physical strain of switching on a microphone?
