Well when you think about it now would be a good time to bring up your wage if you are a health care working in Liberia..

NAIROBI — Dissatisfied health care workers manning Liberia’s Ebola treatment wards may not turn up for work next week unless the government increases newly announced hazard pay. Several health care workers told BuzzFeed News that plans for a strike are in the works after widespread dissatisfaction with a hazard pay scale announced by Liberia’s finance ministry on Oct. 1.

The Liberian government announced last Wednesday that it will offer supervisors in its Ebola treatment centers $850 a month in hazard pay. Doctors will get $825 a month, general practitioners will get $450, and nurses and lab technicians in Ebola wards will get $435, according public remarks by Amara Konneh, the acting finance and development planning minister.

“We have been patient, but we will stop coming to work,” Alphonso P. Massaley, staff representative at the Island Clinic, which opened in Monrovia late September, told BuzzFeed News. “When they are making decisions, they do not regard us, they sit in their offices and decide, whether it is in our interest or not they do not care.”

well because blood and body parts, are an effective way for getting Ebola, or the Hairy Eyeball as it is known,,
for some reason it really like, eye mucus/fluid, enviroment,
,salt??? maybe??
but anyway traditional Strong Arm Tactics are out.

u can get Ebola from blood splatter,,especially if it gets in your eyes.then looks like words.
or untill one side dies off.

So the more directly a person works with Ebola patients the lower their hazard pay.... I love that the supervisors who get to sit back and not deal with it directly are the ones getting the largest hazard pay.
