UNISON launches consultation over NHS rise that meets neither expectations nor real living wage
The government has failed to honour its own ‘levelling up’ promises with the disappointing 3% pay rise for NHS workers in England, says UNISON. The award announced last week doesn’t meet the real living wage of £9.50 per hour for the lowest paid health service workers and widens the gap between those at the top and bottom of the scale, the union says. The 3% increase means the lowest earners will get a rise which is just one sixth of those at the top of the NHS pay scales. UNISON will begin consulting NHS workers later this week on whether they accept the rise, or oppose it and are prepared to ...

The businessman helped set up one of the volunteer groups helping those in need. Saimai Will Survive is named after the Bangkok neighborhood where he lives.

Can Employer Mandates Get More Americans Vaccinated? New York and California Are Finding Out
What to do about the U.S. vaccine uptake rate? Even with what appears to be a slight increase as people try to protect themselves against the more transmissible Delta variant now spreading through many parts of the country, only a pitiful 0.1% or so of Americans are currently getting their first dose every day. That’s a far cry from the urgent scramble that Delta demands, especially given that only about half the country is fully vaccinated—and some places, like Louisiana (36.6%) and Arkansas (36%), are lagging woefully behind. So far, the U.S. vaccination drive has largely relied on carrots—the idea has ...

The 6 Factors That Will Determine the Severity of the COVID-19 Surge in the U.S. This Fall
Here we go again. The United States is now experiencing a fourth wave of COVID-19, with very rapidly rising infections. The surge in new daily cases is driven by the Delta variant, which makes up 83% of sequenced samples in the U.S. and which is estimated to be twice as transmissible as the original strain. One of the reasons that Delta spreads more easily is that a person infected with this variant has a viral load 1,000 times higher than someone infected with the original version of SARS-CoV-2. [time-brightcove not-tgx=”true”] Hospitalizations and deaths are also rising, though more slowly than cases, reflect...
