Housing bosses on + £100,000 salary

Housing maintenance grant budgets are being cut. Major investment in social housing is urgently needed to meet the housing needs of ordinary people. We are told there is not enough dough to go round. Well, if you happen to be a boss of housing associations, there is plenty to go round.

It has been revealed that seven housing associations, notorious for raising rents, pay their chief executives more than £100,000 a year!

But they don’t need to worry, the Minister for Social Development Alex Attwood has said he will deal with this by proposing a “voluntary” pay cut for top earners – that will get ‘em shakin in their boots for sure Alex!
