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

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?

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

Life expectancy for Irish women at 65 is 22 years.

Nurses would be healthier than the average cohort so a fair share of them could expect ti reach 90.

Indeed. I know of nurses who retired in the mid 90s and are still going strong.

The way to deal with this is to have their pension entitlements diminish over time so that for example the full pension would be doled out to them for the first 10 years after retirement and from then onwards there would be 20% reduction for every further 5 years they live until they reach the same level as the standard old age pension at which rate they would stay until they pass on to the next world.

If you think about it my suggestion makes perfect sense, why waste money on these elderly people who have little need of it when you could spend the money on helping working parents with their child care costs?

I didn't think that nurses' pensions would be as high as 70% of final salary. I know that a teacher's maximum pension is 50% of final salary and they only get that after 40 years service - They also pay tax on that amount. I'd be surprised if nurses pensions are higher than those of teachers.
