Commenting on the social care pay announcement, Scottish Labour Health Spokesperson Monica Lennon said:

“Social care workers have been underpaid and undervalued for too long and there is a long way to go to secure the pay and conditions they deserve.

“Many of them will continue to earn under £10 an hour so the Scottish Government’s pay announcement, combined with dangerous PPE shortages and harrowing working conditions, is not a cause for celebration.”

“The care sector is the crisis within a crisis and the Scottish Government must act with urgency to protect everyone who provides and receives social care from the spread of COVID-19.”
