Healthcare workers have been putting themselves on the front-line supporting people who are suffering with COVID-19. .

NOW is the time to show solidarity and support our healthcare hero’s.

It is time for the irish Government and the other EU Governments to start paying their Healthcare workers a decent wage.

Even the Irish President Micheal D. Higgins commented that healthcare workers need to be paid better. You can read what said here:

Irish and other European Union healthcare systems need to be reformed.
Better pay and working conditions will help retain staff and make Irish and other European Healthcare Systems first class and world class. .

If we get lots of people supporting this petition we can send it to the Irish Government and the EU Commission.

The more people support this petition, the bigger voice we have to demand that the Irish government and other European governments sit down with the EU Commission and agree on a fiscal plan to reform healthcare across Europe and pay our healthcare workers a decent wage.

Thank you for your support, Joy farrell from Rush
