That's a nonsense argument. You should not ask for better conditions that other workers/citizens/people enjoy because you do not do precisely the same job? That's a loada crap as Albert Reynolds put it.
If I earn 35k pa and work 39 hours - legally entitled to to prescribe potent drugs, empty bedpans, turn up or turn down your morphine drip and attend to your wishes as your last breath leaves your lungs - I should not be allowed to say that this is micky mouse pay because I am not earning 275,000 euro pa and the bastard who complains about micky mouse pay isn't even there when you breathe your last?
I wil be the person who emties your bedpan and holds the pan while you vomit/urinate/shit into it.
I hope you don't get sick anytime soon and complain when I leave at 1pm on Friday letting you wait for the market to provide your next pain killing shot at 11pm or whenever the market decides that the next shift starts!
