does anyone get paid enough?
working in the "real" world i wouls say i don't get paid enough espically when i see what the army pay for the same job
NHS d grade £15k APPROX
ARMY £19k+ registered nurse= corporal
my employer £16.5k
IF in army at TA Rank £30k
who is paying a nurse enough?
before you answer ask your self if you could change,wash & clean a doubly incontinent adult or calmly and politley deal with the drunk who's just took a swing at you while you try to sew him up.
thanks Lord f. Personnally I think the Army salary at officer level is about right for a nurse. But then could the same be said for alot of Jobs in the military.
Pay 2000 is a military version of the clinical grading system that was brought in to divide nurses and make them fight each other over their perceived worth and not stand up to Govt. IMHO Pay2000 has done same in military.
NOBODY WILL EVER BE PAYED WHAT THEY THINK THEY'RE WORTH
Come on! There are certain people who should be, and secretly probably are, embarrassed about what they are now getting as a result of PANTS2000.... I could SOOOOO give some examples but I won't 'cos I couldnt stand the smug comments.... Oh No! I've become bitter : Do agree about nurses though. Bet those doubly incontinent adults arent considerate enough to be doubly incontinent at the same sitting.....
I write this on behalf of the guys who have been done wrong - I do my job peacetime,wartime and dinnertime - along with the chefs and clerks, and we are on the lower rate (RAMC until WO1).
Infantry are on the higher rate for stagging on (which we all do and have done), playing PS2 and a couple of afternoons training per week. Call me naive, NAIVE (done it for you) but i think the system flaws there. I wish I flew helicopters.
Sadly whatever happens with regards to the amount of money that soldiers are paid will always offend some one ? when pay 2000 came in I recieved an initial small pay rise then recieve two annual pay rises so where is the problem ?
