I don’t support the public sector wide pay freeze, particularly for the workers we rely on to keep the community safe like nurses and paramedics. I’ve supported the St Vincent’s Hospital nurses’ campaign to have their work acknowledged. At this stage non-government MPs plan to block the regulation in the Legislative Council. If the freeze passes, the government must prove how savings will used to create new jobs, particularly given wage increases can help stimulate the economy.
