Social Workers

Social Workers

One should increase the wages of Social Workers which is very low compared to the various responsibilities they have. By increasing their wages one would help reduce the problem of not having enough social workers in Malta since most of the time Students do not choose social work at University due to the low pay grade.

Points

The amount of work that Social Workers do is extremely demanding not only physically, but also emotionally. The work in itself is very stressful and with a wage like that, it's no wonder that those who graduate in Social Work (which are already low in quantity) do not stick to it for a lifetime.

Responsibilities are major and the pay does not reflect the efforts made by a social worker
