Default Private sector nurses paid more than public sector

Is this true ?

In all probability they probably work harder and are probably better workers anyway as is normal in the private sector.

Also not as my much union bull shit is tolerated

Not true! The nurse to patient ratio is higher in public hospitals

It's usually younger nurses taking more pay now, to save for a gaff, or those getting more flexible hours, i.e. with kids, etc.

The State is paying for contractor nurses to fill roles where you have acute shortages in some cases too.

You also have private nursing homes, who'll have privately paid nurses.

You're better off under the state in the long run however, that pension isn't too bad.

Nurses in state hospitals only work 3 days a week so they can also pick up an odd day in a nursing home.

Nope, 3*13 hours every week. It changed a couple of years ago as nurses preferred that option apparently. Your way would probably provide better coverage though.

Nurses tend to be fairly healthy so there's a good chance you'll have to pay them 70% of their final salary for 30 years after they retire., so that's a hidden cost of public sector nurses. And if there are any increases, then all the retired nurses also get their pensions bumped up!

Most nurses live into their 90s?
