6.8% to be precise. Lower than Australia and broadly in line with overall turnover in ireland of 7-8%.
As already stated by the Public Pay Commission there is no general recruitment and retention issues in regard to nurses in ireland.
Any problems are in specific areas of nursing and are best addressed by targeted allowance. Problem is we have people on here ,( and outside) hoping for knock on increases for their own salaries. It is in their financial interests to ignore reality.
Takeaway is there is zero justification for accross the board payrises , the nurses are chancing their arms
The nurses union could teach a trick or two to the mafia!
Getting a tad stirred,Edward, if everyone contributed more, broadened the tax base, there wouldn’t be as big a problem.
But of course when the harsh light of reality is shone on these people they suddenly get out the bullhorns and take to the streets.
If there were more people out there who could see the big picture, and instead of gaming the system then things would be fairer and the stults doing the ‘tipping around doing this and that’ would be forced out from under their slates and contribute like everyone else.
Of course there are the spongs who heap the blame for all this on the Government, the one trick ponies who have nothing to offer themselves except the slimey stink of lefty rhetoric like what do we want,when do we want it.
It’s the big picture, Edward, no team ever won anything with 5 or 6 wasters blaming everyone e else and doing nothing themselves.
