Trained Nurses Picket Parliament Demanding Urgent Employment



Some aggrieved trained nurses have picketed at the Parliament House ahead of the presentation of the 2022 Mid-year budget review by Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta.

The unemployed youth say they have now become a burden to their families and are fed up, after three years of sitting at home without any job.

According to them, picketing at the premises of Parliament will be their last resort to get government to hear their plea after nearly three years of prolonged silence by their employers.

“We don’t understand why we have accessed the portal together with the diploma and degree students and we are still in the house. The degree holders are at post and the diploma holders too are at post but we are still in the house.

“Right now, we are burdens to our families. Some of them are thinking that we failed our exams, which is not so,” they told JoyNews reporter, Michael Papanii Asharley on Monday.
