Quiz time - can anyone make sense of Brendan Barber?

Brendan (head honcho of the TUC) Barber thinks that public sector pensions are just dandy, and that we in the rest of the economy should be jubiliating about the good fortune of our friends, neighbours etc on the teat of general taxation (short version).

This, however, is the stand out bit:

"Decent public sector pensions do compensate for relatively lower pay (1) at the top end of the salary scale, but the opposite is true among low paid workers where the public sector provides pensions that the private sector generally does not".

What does that mean? Answers on a postcard in the comments please.

(1) - The Guardian's appointments page suggests otherwise....
