The classic argument by the worker is that all wages and benefits are subject to negotiation. So in this sense, the worker doesn't "grant" themselves anything. Rather, they maximize their pension according to the allowable rules. I am very familiar with this area. The most common "spike" is through the sell back of leave. This can easily make a nominal formula like 2@55 more like 2.6@55.

The article needs to explain how it is possible that "employees inflate their compensation". Employees don't just get to choose whatever they want to be paid. Does this mean exchanging one form of compensation (e.g. unused leave) for another? That is compensation the employee earned and is entitled to receive. It is not cheating to accept what you have earned in keeping with the terms under which you earned it. I think this whole article consists of a deliberately warped expression ("spiking" as in sharp, dangerous...) to support someone's political agenda. Article needs equal time for opposite point of view, or to be deleted for non-notability. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 23:31, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
