The Government and HSE are currently trying to recruit nurses into the HSE at 80% of current salaries. While this recruitment drive seems very unfair to me, I would like to make the following point that may make this sort of recruitment more acceptable to the public and potential recruits. I suggest that going forward all Public service/Government recruitment be 80% of current salaries. Why is the Nursing profession been singled out for such cuts? Is it an easy option for the Government as they know most Nurses will not leave patients on trolleys. Time to implement the 20% cut on all new entrants to the PS/Government roles in the spirit of fairness.
