So where are the China Figures.
Another article where title does not seem relevant to article.
Do the journalists even check the facts before posting articles.
WTF.

Never mind the entire public sector. I even might agree with salary increases in the safety and security areas.
What really turned heads was the HUGE salary increases of politicians or 'politically connected' jobs, like town-planers and managers.
In one of his first speaches after been released, Mandela mentioned the relatively high salaries received by the Apartheid parliamentarians. The salaries were on average 7x higher than the per capita GDP. Mandela wanted to bring them down and named India as an example. Over there the parliamentarians receive only 3 or so times the per capita GDP. After all, the parliamentarians work for the public and not the other way around. In South Africa"s case, Mandela wanted to achive that by increasing the GDP and not by dropping the salaries. A noble idea. However, when he stepped down the gap ended up increasing slightly. Nothing to worry about though.
Now, 20y later, the gap stands at around 45x !!!! Yes, you read right FORTY-FIVE. Only Kenya is higher at around 190x. And on top of this comes the corruption South Africa is having. ! #NewSouthAfrica

Putting 550 billion in a big pile and lighting it on fire is money poorly spent, this is much worse, we don't just lose the 550 billion, we also have a leech infestation that continues to suck the treasury dry long after their salaries have been paid.

Does the wage bill also take into account all the perks?
Wage bill I assume is cost to company, so yes.

I do however know what the wage bill does not account. Contract workers. Of which there are a **** load.
