How recent is that info? I realise you probably have a better insight into it than I do, but this was literally a week ago, and from what she was saying it's a new policy, as in both have the same start pay. Seems quite fair, both doing the same job.
I'm not sure it does work out, tbh. Maybe during IOT, sure, but after that no. A newly qual'd EngO should get more than the 18 yr old APO. The EngO had to go to uni to get the degree - they can't do the job without it so they should get paid more for having the degree, imo.
