Communists appeal for better working conditions for child carers
The Communist Party of Malta is highly concerned with the employment conditions of childcare assistants. This issue was already brought to light by the Malta Union of Teachers and recently by Dr Anna Borg, researcher in Social policy.
The Party states that “many of the workers in this sector are being employed with inferior conditions of employment, precarious job contracts and low wages”, stated the Communist Party.
“Government should not allow such bad practices to continue, both in public and private Health centers. Should increase the state funding, and new regulations are a necessity to improve the service and working conditions of workers. The responsibility for monitoring the quality of care is in government’s hands”, concluded the Communist Party.
