Male Nurses of Punjab are Protesting
Male nurses of Punjab are protesting in front of Lahore Press Club against male-disparity in government jobs. The story behind this matter is that government has announced more than 12,000 thousand seats for nurses through Punjab Public Service Commission. But the job’s title “ only for females” hurt and disappointed thousands of male-nurses in Punjab. Recently the government has announced 4753 seats for nurses in Punjab with the same job title. Due to this tragedy, most of the male-nurses are unemployed or constrained to work in private institutes at very low salaries.
They have earned their diploma and degrees after spending 3-5 years and several lacs, but now are the victim of gender-inequality. They have also requested many times to the government and Pakistan Nursing Council for their recruitment but no use. Today they are on roads, saying “No to Inequality” and want a satisfactory answer by Government of Punjab and Pakistan Nursing Council.
