The Government has offered ACT nurses a wage increase of 2% a year, and the nurses are not very happy about it reports ABC News.
Australian Nursing Federation spokeswoman Jenny Miragaya says that is below the cost of living.
“Well this is the worst pay offer that’s been made, it doesn’t even compare with the conservative governments in the rest of Australia,” she said.
“This is the least pay offer that my nurses have been offered for well over 30 years.”
