Letter: Job sharing

I'LL SHARE Frank Field's job anytime ('We should share our jobs', 5 December). I suspect that he would be less inclined to share mine - civil servant, with take-home pay of pounds 9,030 per annum. Get real, Mr Field. There are thousands of people out here struggling to survive on their full-time wages in Britain's low-pay economy who can't vote for their own pay rises.

Some self-sacrifice on the part of the so-called 'great and good' would be of much more interest than another half- baked suggestion about how we can once again pay for this Government's mismanagement of the economy.
