Some people in business, have had MASSIVE pay cuts (and lost bonuses which amount to a lot of money) last year too AND they're supposed to be grateful! TA's had no payrise last time, but then 2% of their pay isn't much! Let's face it, no-one is going to be happy earning less and paying more, but it's got to be done somehow. I don't think getting rid of TA's will solve the National debt. It's not like we are football players and earn millions. Maybe Fabio Capello could chip in?
