    The firefighters feel duped

    I am wondering if my sentence is grammatically correct.

    The firefighters feel duped after the new pension scheme has been introduced because not only do they have to pay more into their pension fund, but also they have to work longer.

    Use 'since the new pension scheme was introduced'.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
