In the private sector, someone with 14 years of experience and a post graduate degree would earn far more.

Not necessarily. With layoffs in different industries, it's very possible the person in the private sector wouldn't be making >$90,000 if they've had setbacks in their career - such as having to take a paycut after a layoff.

Plus the private sector person most likely isn't pension eligible, can't stay in a company healthcare plan once they retire, and doesn't get 3 months of vacation time.
