Health workers protest wage cuts in Romania

BUCHAREST

Apr 17, 2018-

Romanian health workers are protesting pay cuts following government promises to hike salaries in the health care sector amid a general tax and wage overhaul. Some 200 medics, nurses and other health workers protested on Monday at the regional Emergency Hospital in the southern city of Craiova, threatening to strike if the situation was not resolved. In the capital of Bucharest, health workers protested at the Bagdasar Arseni Hospital and the Marius Nasta Institute, saying their wages had also fallen in March. Romania’s left-wing government has significantly increased pay for most health workers. The most disputed change has been shifting social security taxes from employers to employees. (AP)
