Why are nurses paying for bankers' mistakes?


Certain sections of the media seem to be portraying this as a battle between Public Sector Workers - vs - Taxpayers. I seem to still be paying tax though - did I miss a memo about that? It's not just nurses and public sector workers though, some of the most vulnerable in our society are paying a huge price in the current austerity measures.Bankers meanwhile continue to take hefty bonuses, something is inherently wrong in our society. If a society is 'judged on how it treats the weakest members...' (Pope John Paul II) then how is our society/government fairing - not too well imo.
