Comment on The graduate tax masquerading as student loans by DemiGod

The end destination, as I understand, is a single government account; so in many ways it functions as a tax receipt. All deductions: 1. Tax, 2. NI, 3. Pension contribution, 4. employer's NI 5. Student loan 6. Employer's pension top up etc, unless the pension is private, go to an unfunded government account (no government pension is an investment it is a burden on tomorrow's tax payers). So in those sectors, 41% total tax is the minimum. The amount it costs to employ someone is much higher and thus the total 'real' deduction HMRC receives. It is a wonder graduates have jobs at all given this crippling overhang. But that is why pension ages are rising and robots are coming!
