I really must give credit to the HSE for this one.
Newly appointed nursing graduates are being appointed (unsuccessfully it seems due to an ongoing boycott) on 80% of the existing salary of a starting nurse by the HSE.
So why doesn't Enda Kenny extend this to his cabinet in order to save money?
Kenny should sack his entire cabinet and then reappoint them on 80% of their existing salaries as James Reilly seems to think this is a great idea to save money and employ full time nurses on 22,000 a year.
Of all our cabinet ministers would still be on a salary in excess of 100,000 a year.
