Perhaps they should be known (more accurately) as "Administrators"?
The Japanese used to use the term "salary men". The deal was that they droned on for years and years, on a comfortable enough salary, with a reasonable pension at the end of it. What's wrong with that? Nothing.
The trouble is that not everyone is salaried. Like myself, for instance. Not much time for moaning about the minutae
of AfC and which Pay Band I think I should be on (because I've served three weeks longer than the next guy) when I spend half my time worrying
about where the next pound is coming from!
