Czech Republic -Demand of 5% pay increase in health care -June 12, 2014

The health and social care unions are pushing for a pay increase in 2015 of 5%, rejecting the 3.5% promised by the government. Union representatives pointed to the low wages earned by those who care for the elderly or disabled, warning of a worsening of quality. Union leader Dagmar Žitníková charged that long term the situation had only grown worse, saying that jobs in the social services were among the most poorly paid.
