QLD Nurse Pay-Packets Boosted This Week
Queensland Health’s over 32,000 public nurses and midwives have this week received their final instalment of an almost 10% pay increase since the Newman LNP government was elected to office just over two years ago.Health Minister Lawrence Springborg said the pay packet boost was in sharp contrast to the trauma experienced by nurses and midwives under the previous government when they couldn’t even be guaranteed a regular pay-packet thanks to Labor’s infamous billion-dollar payroll debacle.
