Venezuelan doctors now join nurses in strike. Wages less than $2 per month

Medical Federation calls for an increase of between 200 and 420 minimum salaries

CARACAS.- The president of the Venezuelan Medical Federation, Douglas León Natera, informed that the Medical Federation has made estimates of how much a professional in the area should gain and said that it should be at least "200 minimum salaries".

"We initiate our petition with 200 minimum wages for the internal doctor and rural doctor, (recently graduated), for the resident doctor 220 minimum wages, for the doctor 1, 230 minimum wages, for the specialist 1 and thereafter until closing the last table of the maximum scale that is the public health doctor 3 and the medical director of type 4 hospital with 420 minimum wages, "said Leon Natera.

The union will continue the paralysis of labor activities until the government guarantees them a salary adjusted to their needs.

He assured, in an interview on the program A Tiempo de Unión Radio , that the government "does not comply with what is established in the Constitution, which is to guarantee health and life to Venezuelans . "

León Natera reiterated that not only require a salary adjustment, but also that hospitals and health centers are equipped with the necessary supplies" so that we can exercise with dignity and guarantee life in the exercise of the profession, to patients."


Yes, "necessary supplies". Like running water. Electricity. Perhaps bandages and antiseptic. Maybe a few antibiotics, immunization supplies and some insulin thrown in there.

But, Chavismo has more important things to concern themselves with. Like staying in power. Which is why a newly promoted captain in the Venezuelan military makes 2000% more in wages than the highest ranking tenured university professor. Even though, all the noise Maduro makes every other week about coups so silly... why would his military upset the gravy train?
