Not to mention, the public sector is suffering massively. Our local authority is laying off something like 1600 people. Most of those from the children's services division. Everyone is suffering. People in both sectors need to stop looking to make it sound like one is worse off than the other!

And as others have mentioned, there aren't directly comparable roles in private sector compared with public for many roles.
