Pay priorities explain the problem


If Mr Massie (NCE 6 July) really pays an engineering technician with four years' experience £10,000pa, and ended up paying a graduate £9,000 pa, he doesn't have to look far for the reason why civil engineering is an unattractive profession to many students. He objects to 'suicidal fee cutting', but seems to think it is alright to pay his professional staff considerably less than someone who empties the dustbins. Cloud cuckoo land or what?
