Let's Give our NHS Workers a Decent Pay Rise!
In its budget the Government has decided it wants to thank the NHS workers, who have put themselves on the front line throughout this pandemic, by giving them a pay cut in real terms. A paltry pay rise of 1% means nothing when prices are expected to rise 1.5% (Office for Budget Responsibility). NHS workers have gone above and beyond to keep us all safe and get us vaccinated, they deserve the country's thanks and a decent pay rise, not a cut.
Devon Lib Dems are calling on the Government to give our NHS workers a proper and substantial real terms pay rise now! Time to recognise the sacrifice and hard-work of the NHS.
Sign our petition to demand a decent pay rise for NHS workers.
Stand up for carers
Carers - paid and unpaid, young and old - do a remarkable and important job.
They deserve our support but are far too often forgotten and ignored. Liberal Democrats will stand up for carers and lead the way to a more caring society as we emerge from this pandemic.
This starts by raising Carer's Allowance for unpaid carers by £1,000 a year.
