legitimate letters that I receive from people thanking me on behalf of all the staff at the Canberra Hospital for the very important services they provide to the community.

In closing, I received a letter today from a registered nurse which reads:

To Mr Corbell

I am a registered nurse currently working in the Child, Youth and Women’s Health Program and have recently received the long awaited pay rise and back pay. I am very grateful for this remuneration and feel that our profession is at last becoming more valued within the community. So, thank you. It has been grateful appreciated.

That is of course in marked contrast to the work of the previous government under the Liberals that delivered real wage decreases to ACT public sector workers.
