'Sacrifice' too noble a word in rural pay row

- +

Public Health Minister Pradit Sintawanarong may have good intentions in introducing a pay-for-performance system to administer our public health workforce _ doctors, dentists, nurses and others. 

I am only guessing at his intentions here because truth be told, I have never been informed of the details of what exactly it is he is trying to achieve.

And that is a big part of the problem. That is probably the reason why the minister finds himself in a rather messy situation with hundreds of doctors shedding their scrubs and surgical masks for wide-rimmed hats so they can go out in the sun and protest against him.
