Nurses who have not been posted are not happy with the Nation’s Builders Corp program.
The nurses who have been home for more than two years believe they have not been treated fairly.
According to them, prior to the launch of the program, they met with the government to hold discussions about giving them financial clearance so that they can start work.
To their surprise, the government, instead of posting them and giving them the right salary has chosen to add them to the NABCO program and pay them less than their fellow nurses who have been posted.
They see this as a cheat as they will be under paid and also face the same risk as those who have been given financial clearance to work.
While some unemployed graduates from the various universities are happy about the initiative, the nurses on the other hand want to be given a permanent job.
According to them, the Ministry of Health promised to post them in August so they are very surprised they have been included in the program.
The nurses believe that since this is a contract job, nurses who will be selected will not be eligible for study leave after the three years as compared to their other colleagues.
They want the government to give them a permanent job because they are willing to work and wait for their financial clearance so that they can be given salary they deserve.
