"Salary and Benefits Reduction for Lawmakers"
- As per public knowledge, our Liberian Law Makers' salary is around 15k. In this light, a few of us came together to get 10k plus signatures to petition our lawmakers to reduce their salary. Sick patients at facilities in Liberia buy their own medications daily. Against this backdrop,some doctors, have decided to create this online link to solicit signatures to petition them. If that does not work, we are then willing to organize a mass protest.
This is not about us, but our children's future. We are professionals and can survive any bad economy, but what about a pregnant woman who cannot afford her hospital bills; what about the children whose parents cannot afford to buy them ACT for Malaria; what about the old folks?
In fact, on average, we work more hours than any other profession, yet we are underpaid, but the guys who go to work twice a week get thousands, while the masses suffer.
We want your support. We can't sit and see Liberia fall so fast. If we do, posterity will judge us all.
