Source: Die Linke “Four members of the government want to shine with video messages on Care Day today. This does not work with empty hands: not without collectively agreed wages and better working conditions. The care policy of the federal government in the last few months has even led to working hours of 60 hours a week again, not only in Lower Saxony. And nationwide, there is a lack of intensive care nurses in hospitals. Nice words do not ensure better pay and more staff in the care ”, criticizes Pia Zimmermann, spokeswoman for care policy of the parliamentary group DIE LINKE, the appearance of Angela Merkel, Jens Spahn, Hubertus Heil and Franziska Giffey at the 7th German Care Day starting today. Zimmermann continues: “We finally need a concerted action that leads to solid financing of care that is also up to current and future challenges beyond Corona. Specifically: on the basis of which more and, at the same time, better paid staff is possible in the long term. Really good news for long-term care would immediately be regulations for solidary long-term care insurance. The nursing staff can no longer wait for this. Because a good supply has long been at risk for many people. “
