Scores of physicians in the United Kingdom are striking today at what they are claiming is a balk by the government negotiated deals they had in place just a few short years ago. The Nation picks up on this:

Under the proposed changes, doctors currently under the age of 50 would have to work to 68, and pay more for their pensions. The government is imposing a deal that would require the best-paid doctors to contribute 14.5 percent of their salary (up from 8.5 percent).

The proposed changes are fueling the ire of physicians there because pension contributions based upon seniority have apparently been reneged upon by the government. The Nation blog piece examines the seemingly “misplaced” priorites between the geniune concerns of government employees and the state — which should be casting a fresh eye on how it taxes its wealthy in times of fiscal crisis. | LINK
