Care worker low wages in Wales ‘not sustainable’

13 August 2020 – BBC News

A Cardiff University report has revealed that less than half of carers earn a “real living wage” of £9.30 an hour, with no above-inflation pay rises in care homes for 10 years.

The authors said the low pay was not sustainable with it having an unequal affect on women, as they make up four of every five care home workers.

The reports calls for wide-ranging reforms of the sector.
