Fair Pay for Healthcare Workers!

    Fair Pay for Healthcare Workers!

    12 years under this Liberal-National government has seen wages for nurses, midwives and paramedics go backwards. 

    Our healthcare system is in crisis. Exhausted senior staff are leaving the profession in droves due to poor pay and conditions meaning fewer staff overall to pick up the slack. This is putting staff and patients at risk. 

    The Greens plan will show nurses, midwives and paramedics the respect they deserve while attracting skilled workers back to the profession and inspiring others to join it. 

    Add your name to send an email to the Premier and Opposition Leader to commit to: 

    • Abolish the wage cap and institute minimum pay rises for Nurses, Midwives and Paramedics in line with CPI 
    • An immediate 15% pay rise for Nurses, Midwives and Paramedics
    • Locking in pay rises for Nurses, Midwives and Paramedics of 2% above inflation for the next 4 years
