Pay differentials 1

March 12, 2004

John Lauwerys (Letters, February ) is absolutely right to remind us that comparisons in average percentage salary increases between vice-chancellors and academic staff are often misleading. It is incumbent upon each of us to ask ourselves whether we would prefer 6 per cent of three, four or five times (delete as appropriate) our salary compared with the raise that we find notified on our payslips.
