Show me the money

SHADES of Jerry Maguire with Emerald and Central Highlands’ nurses among the throng of healthcare workers who demanded “Show me the money!” as they picketed Parliament House on Wednesday.

“The member health unions at the rally expressed their frustrations with homemade signs and banners and chants,” said one local nurse.

“They were venting anger and dismay at the failure of Queensland Health’s new payroll system.

“There were members even on Wednesday that had major errors in their pay, or had no pay go into their bank accounts.”

Federal Health Minister Nicola Roxon weighed in on the fiasco, saying she wants the payroll system fixed as it is hurting families.
