Lets pay care workers the £10 per hour they deserve

This petition had 47 supporters

Social care workers undertaking support for vulnerable adults living at home represent very good value for the NHS. The role they undertake is increasingly complicated and demanding, like other sectors of the NHS they work every day of the year. There is more pressure on them and providers like me to ensure they have the skills necessary to undertake this difficult work. Most are paid less than unskilled manual workers. The introduction of the compulsory pension scheme gives them the opportunity to pay into their own pension; this becomes law next year. Most care workers will tell you they cannot afford to pay into it. Let's show our appreciation and pay them accordingly for the selfless work they undertake. £10 an hour it's fair!
