Happy days.

Am i really the one with blinkers on?

Whats wrong with them being paid well? Politics of envy right there.

Fact of the matter is, they get paid less than private sector execs. They're job is stressful and hard, hours are long, often 7 days a week, in the public eye, often have to work abroad, family displacement and requires talented people.


I do find it ironic that the people who are in favour of free market private economies where bonuses of millions of pounds a year are dished out, then get the hump when public servants are paid what starting graduates earn in some industries.

Can't see many salaries here over the 130K euro mark. Maybe Glassdoor is in on the conspiracy to hide the true salaries.

https://www.glassdoor.co.uk/Salary/European-Commission-Brussels-Salaries-EI_IE14


For a start there’s only 150 jobs on there out of 50000. Before any of the extras are added.

Personal assistant £12,000 per month.

Team leader £120k a year

Case handler £88k a year

Translator £90k a year!! ( there’s more than 8000 of these)

Admin assistant £70k a year.

These are public sector jobs and they are rediculous.


Comparing them to footballers and private sector directors is just pathetic.

As I said take the blinkers off. Some of you are so biased with your views that you’d rather compare them to directors and footballers who are paid extortionate money all over the world rather than compare them to the people in similar roles in this countries. We have soldiers, firemen and police on less than £30k yet they have admin assistants on over £100k.

Petition
Leave the EU without a deal in March 2019.

We are wasting Billions of pounds of taxpayers money trying to negotiate in a short space of time. Leaving the EU in March 2019 will allow the UK good time to negotiate more efficiently. The EU will be more eager to accept a deal on our terms having lost a major partner.

. . .which on reflection implies that the majority are people like Leon Britain dialing in from abroad, and probably a platoon of GRU officers in St Petersburg.

Mate. where are you getting these numbers from? Im no fan of the EU and agree its a gravy train, but those figures youre quoting seem made up to me.

Edit: Actually, doesnt matter. Be careful how these numbers get spun. A lot of those people will technically be "on assignment". European businesses do this a lot - ie education allowance, child allowance, re-lo allowance. In private businesses these allowances can often be more than the employees actual salary. Im not saying its right as its funded by the taxpayer.

The UK does it too, although usually thats at the senior end of the scale. The UK is far tighter when it comes to these sort of lucrative packages. The Euros love them though.

Funnily enough.. the 90k for a translator bit i actually believe. Whether there is 8000 of them, im not so sure. But dont forget, we are thinking of translators such as we see in the PL, ie a manager who cant speak english has one sat next to him. Im sure there are many of these - however, think how much admin and documentation has to be translated for 25+ countries.. probs about 250 a nation..the 90k is probably PA/Exec end though. Lots of the minions wont be.

Also, the Admin Assistant bit.. again, that depends. Ive been in private businesses where a Global Head of Admin is a HUGE job paying £250k+. They will have hundreds of people reporting into them on 25k tho..

I’m pretty sure that entry level salaries for translators in the EU are ca. £ 48 K. As you say the majority will be earning nowhere near £ 90k.

Translator salaries at European Commission can range from €83,267-€89,656. This estimate is based upon 1 European Commission Translator salary report(s) provided by employees or estimated based upon statistical methods. See all Translator salaries to learn how this stacks up in the market.

Again that’s off the link battersea provided.
