The govt seems to think that is it better to cut the pay and conditions rights of junior doctors to save money instead of say ensuring that big business pays the taxes that they owe.
So are junior doctors the new scroungers? Are they really taking out more than they put into society? Or are they just another small group who are being expected to suffer in the short term to satisfy the Tory ideology of cuts at the cost of those least able to defend themselves?
Personally I believe that they should only take from those at the bottom once those at the top have been made to pay their fair share. Sure, junior doctors start on 40k per year but this latest stand off signifies that the govt sees those who earn less than 50k per year as being those who should bare the brunt of the cuts, along with teachers, nurses and the much touted strivers that they claim to support while taking away their crutches.
