Nurses, teachers, social workers, police, and similar – these are all people who provide a service for the public.. and none of them are easy jobs. Considering what these jobs consist of, in my opinion, none of them are paid enough, then on top of that, they keep getting given below inflation pay rises.
When is this Government of ours going to realise that these are important people, doing important jobs. Yes, I’m a nurse, so I fall into this category, but this is about this huge group of people in general. Even if I wasn’t a nurse, I’m sure I’d still feel the same.
House prices have flown up recently, petrol has reached an all time high, gas and electricity companies are all announcing huge rises.. it goes on and on. This means that year after year, public sector workers are falling further and further behind. I wonder how many will still be able to afford to stay in their careers a few years down the line?
Sorry, rant over!
