Care workers are not as qualified as nurses, but still need a licence. They say they’re being given more to do and are carrying out certain medical procedures.

The salary is currently around CHF 5,300 a month and is set on a rate defined by civil service pay grades.

There are about 700 in Geneva and they believe their job should be reassessed.
