In a post on social networks, Judge of the Chisinau Court Victoria Sanduta wonders why the current ministers receive much higher salaries compared to surgeons who save lives every day.
The judge asks why the salary of a minister is 50 thousand lei, while that of a doctor is 15 thousand lei. An official investigation has been launched against another doctor for disrespecting a patient. “Here is a question to the Minister of Health and everyone else, if we still have to decide again: do you think that a team of surgeons who perform 5 operations a day, 4 planned and one emergency, in which they literally save a person from death, is a more or less responsible job than that of a minister? First, if you claim that they are equally responsible, why does the minister have a salary of 50 thousand lei per month and the surgeon has a salary of 15 thousand lei? Why? I am asking seriously. Second, if you say that the work of a surgeon is more responsible than the work of a minister, because a surgeon is responsible for a person’s life, why does a minister have a monthly salary of 50 thousand lei and a surgeon has a monthly salary of 15 thousand lei? Why? I am asking seriously. 3. If you say that the work of a minister is more responsible than that of a surgeon, then keep doing what you are doing, that is, do nothing. That’s fine. Claps and likes to ministers,” Victoria Sandutsa wrote in her post.
