National Care Forum comments on pay rise for public sector workers

by Lisa Carr

Public sector workers on the front line of dealing with the coronavirus pandemic will be given a pay rise, the Chancellor has announced.

Doctors, teachers and police officers are among those who will see extra money in their pay packet after a testing few months since Covid-19 hit the UK.

Vic Rayner, Executive Director of the National Care Forum says: “It is unacceptable for the government to side step the issue around social care workers pay in today’s announcement. Care workers have been a stalwart of the Covid front line and need recognition. This has never been a low skilled job, and should never again be consigned as a low paid role. We need the government to act now to ensure that each and every care worker is rewarded for their extraordinary work.”
