Deputy PM:sadly nurses can earn more money in Australia

From First Up, 5:41 am on 10 June 2021

The Deputy Prime Minister says it's an unfortunate truth that our nurses can earn more money in Australia, as they demand better pay and conditions. Nathan Rarere spoke with Grant Robertson about the vaccine rollout; criticisms of the government's levels of transparency; and the complicated topic of transgender women's participation in women's sport. But he began by asking him whether - after yesterday's massive nurses strike - it's time for the government to come to the table and offer our nurses the sort of recompense they'd be satisfied with for the difficult and vital work that they do.
