Agency workers are not elligible for the £500 bonus awarded by the government for their efforts during Covid to those working in the health and social care industry. This is a form of economic injustice and I am petitioning in their support. As a home administrator in a care home, I can assure you that without utilising agency workers we would not have made it out the other end of our outbreak or 2020! Agency workers have worked tirelessly, even more so during the Covid-19 pandemic than some of the staff that are 'entitled' to this award! For instance, agency staff covered isolation periods and prolonged shielding periods and were the first to jump in and offer assistance in homes with active outbreaks! It is ludicrous that their efforts are not being recognised too!! It is only fair that they recieve a % of this bonus based on their accrewed working hours during the pandemic!!!
