**From the BBC website Social care system 'beginning to collapse' as 900 carers quit every day
I suppose the BBC headline above tells it all. I am not sure what they get paid these days. I suppose the over 25s get something over £7.50 an hour. Considering the responsibility and the nature of the work I have always wondered how they ever managed to retain any staff. Any job may be better than no job but I wonder with work like this at these sort of pay rates. Others may get paid no more but not many and even fewer have to do such work.
