I'd say there's plenty working in the private sector who wouldn't get close to some nursing salaries

If they are in a job with that extent of training and if they have to work nights, Xmas etc, then they need to ask for a pay rise.

Plus holding a degree!!!

Gotta love the logic of the right wingers, "sure isn't someone else being paid peanuts as well!" seems to make it alright when nurses are on their uppers, using food banks, leaving the profession in droves all the while waiting lists are through the roof and life expectancy dropping.

Leaving the profession to work for an agency doing the same job

For more money and the agency coining it in...

Absolutely, a lot of nurses i know have to get agency work just to make ends meet. They are amongst our best people , front liners . And as you said it's 4 years at uni and long hard hours

It was always going to be a combination of tax hikes and spending cuts. There is no other way to cut a deficit.

Which requires more spending and more debt?

Disclaimer. I'm not an economist so I'm half guessing here.

Completely agree. Whether in good times or bad. So it's all bullshit. And rising taxes is f**king ridiculous in a cost of living crisis. People will be even poorer yet poster on here were cheerleading this idea.

Some sage advice I once heard dished out.  Hopefully will help you deal with this turmoil.


"It'll be tough no doubt. But we've seen tough times before and we will see them again. Try not to get to worked up about it."

ďGot up this morning, kids still went to school. I went to work. Things much the same since last Thursday.Ē

"Turn the news off. You'll feel better. Honestly."

We're only a year from the same approach down south imho

Too much spending, too much reliance on corporate tax take from a few companies
