Be a hero by urging Higgs to give nurses a bonus for their sacrifices.

Surprise, surprise, Premier Higgs recently announced his government once again will have an “unexpected” surplus of $247 million. If that money is not spent by March 31, then it will be sent to the bankers to pay down New Brunswick’s debt. Premier Higgs has already sent over $2 billion to bankers in the past three years. That’s $2 billion that could help improve our healthcare system.

“Let's give nurses and long-term care workers the bonuses they deserve!” said David Coon. It's time for a morale boost and a real vote of confidence in our healthcare workers!”

The best news, we can afford these bonuses using the $247 million surplus. The cost to give every nurse working in hospitals and nursing homes a $10,000 retention bonus would be less than $100 million. But Premier Higgs has limited time before the money is gone for good.

If you agree with David, be a hero. Write Premier Higgs and urge him to reward our healthcare heroes rather than just sending the money to the bankers.
