Reader feedback: What about my salary?

Re: Study: Slovak PM earns the least, May 15 - May 21, 2006, Volume 12, Number 19

I am really not interested in the PM's salary. I am more affected by my salary, which is incomparable to that of my colleagues from the EC. We are equal, but not in this way. They don't understand why I don't go on holiday to the sea each year and why I don't travel during the year. I'm too embarrassed to tell them the truth.

Eva,
