On Andrew Marr Theresa May dodged a key question about nurses’ pay. Nurses are now so poorly paid that several are having to use food banks to make ends meet.
The Royal College of Nursing says that, because of the 1% public sector pay cap, nurses are 14% worse off in real terms since 2010. Meanwhile, the fat cat bankers ,who both fund the Tory party and caused the crash in the first place, are giving themselves massive pay rises. To add insult to injury, MPs gave themselves a 10% pay rise within months of the 2015 election and, last year, got a 1.3% pay rise on top. Obviously MPs don’t think that they are public sector and they are clearly more important than nurses!
