About how we really shouldn\’t be having public sector cuts (you know, no job losses among those the TUC represents: make some other bastard pay, not our members) containing this lovely little line:
Asking workers to do ‘more with less’ might sound like a good idea, but in
practice less spending means increased workloads, more stress, low morale and
poorer quality services.
It\’s as if they\’ve never heard of total factor productivity. You know, this thing that says that the entire history of human civilisation is based upon the evidence that we can indeed produce more with less. In the range of 1-1.5% each and every year for the past couple of centuries actually.
So, we can blow them off as know nothing shills then, can\’t we?
