This isn’t correct. In the hospital I work in currently, everyone is paid fortnightly, nurses included. It’s a hse hosp. The last hospital I worked in was voluntary, and everyone was paid monthly. So it depends on your hospital

Did I touch a nerve.
Don't worry dear, you won't go cold or hungry. Why don't you work on improving your use of sophistry.

“Public support is waning” ha ha

The public change like the wind. They will support/oppose something today but will do the opposite when it suits.
The purpose of a strike is to make things hard for the public otherwise they wouldn’t notice it. The public will swing towards blaming either side as they see fit BUT one thing is certain — they will need nurses before they need a TD.

All the nurses have to do is stick at what they’re at and maybe increase the strike days.

I think poor Brendan is in his wee bubble if he thinks this. Support is most definitely there and him along with his blinkered friends david37, alloywheel and road_high are in the minority.

I'm supporting the nurses, as they really looked after me when I was in hospital
for a few days at Christmas 2017 with cellulitis.

I didn't think public support was that strong really. It's all finger in the wind stuff anyway, there's no good hard data I've seen.

To be honest, I think intermittent strike should be illegal. All out or nothing.

I think nurses have a tough job as i saw when i was in hospital over xmas 2016, something i wouldn't like to do but i still dont think they deserve a payrise as i think they are paid very well and many jobs are tough that get paid alot less.
