The following was found on the fb page of A. Jenkins and I feel her views should be heard.
It is not about being paid, it is about having money to live. Many carers cannot work due to the needs of the one they care for. It has been suggested we should care out of love, it isn’t about love, believe me if that paid for our clothes and food we would be richer than every politician in this country! We need to eat, put clothes on our bodies and pay the bills. Please dont make assumptions about things misunderstood, just ask a person who is a carer before making bold statements 🙌
As my friend NIGEL says, “To carers, the ‘living wage’ is a distant dream!!”
