THE VILLAINOUS bully, Jeremy Hunt, this week pulled his snout from out of the trough long enough to tell our wonderful NHS workers that they would not be receiving a 1% pay rise and that they would be subject to performance related pay. Performance related pay….
This must be some kind of sick joke if we look at other industries, their pay rises and the issue of performance;
Queen gets £5M pay rise (but still ended up this year down to her last million!!)
Bankers Bonuses up 44% (on top of their 35% pay increase!!!)
FTSE 100 directors get 14% pay rise
MPs pay rise 11%
British Gas prices up 9.2% (despite £20m profits on over inflated bills)
Minimum Wage up 19p (but you’re still sharing 1 job with 3 people and/or watching the phone to ring on a zero hour contract)
Nurses pay up 0%
Teachers pay -3%
Don’t even ask about the police or fire service. You could not make it up.
Nurses, doctors, teachers, police and firefighters are being hung out to dry so that these corrupt politicians can keep their billionaire mates in the life they have been accustom too. Wealth does not ‘trickle down’, no, it quite clearly bubbles up to the top. Bankers, on top of their 35% pay increase, have been receiving a 44% increase in bonuses, with firms such as RBS for example receiving over £500m in bonuses DESPITE LOSING another £8.6bn and the last of the £46bn of taxpayers money given to them in 2008 as part of the bailout process. Where is their performance related pay, as shareholders we should be holding them to account! Banking terrorists and the economic wage slave mates do not get performance related pay, just the miracle workers in the NHS.
Jeremy Hunt has also threatened the loss of 6000 nurses if they were to receive the 1% pay rise, leaving the unions within the NHS no choice but to consult their staff on a ballot for strike action. I hope they seriously consider this action and if they take the brave steps to enter into industrial dispute with these ideologically driven MP’s and their pursuit for more of our life blood, that we fight tooth and nail to support our amazing NHS staff, as they have fought for our lives from cradle to grave.
