In its budget the Government has decided it wants to thank the NHS workers, who have put themselves on the front line throughout this pandemic, by giving them a pay cut in real terms. A paltry pay rise of 1% means nothing when prices are expected to rise 1.5% (Office for Budget Responsibility). NHS workers have gone above and beyond to keep us all safe and get us vaccinated, they deserve the country's thanks and a decent pay rise, not a cut.
Devon Lib Dems are calling on the Government to give our NHS workers a proper and substantial real terms pay rise now! Time to recognise the sacrifice and hard-work of the NHS.
Sign our petition to demand a decent pay rise for NHS workers.
