    Then why is it not applicable to nurses, or teachers or any jobs that have the government as an employer? Everyone was/is getting fucked by the inflation and we’re losing critical personnel by the spade while CAQ is voting themselves cushy raises way above anything reasonable. That’s the problem with the 30% raise.

    They spit in our faces and people still find a way to justify it. Stop licking their boot and demand better from our elected officials

      You’re asking the right question. It makes no sense that there aren’t raises across the board for healthcare workers who fall under the umbrella of working in the provincial healthcare system when the provincial leadership is getting a fat raise to counter inflation.

      That said I was replying to the question of “should politicians be well compensated” to which I still think the answer is yes, since it makes a leadership position a good career path for someone who’s legitimately competent in their field. We don’t need more people like Legault and his cronies in politics, we need working class people who don’t come from old and lobbied money, and the way to do that is by making local politics more accessible to the working class.

      And yeah, we should be getting better from elected officials, since right now it feels as though they’ll only listen to corporate interests, thinking short term until we’re back into the next electoral cycle.

      Relaxe mon chum… I don’t think anyone here has said that. Nurses and teachers should be paid well too (although I think working conditions are the bigger problem in their case rather than pay)
