England and Wales.. Ambulance workers go on strike due to low wages

Ambulance workers in England and Wales went on strike today over an ongoing dispute with the government over wages, with fourteen other unions comprising around one million members of NHS England saying they would not continue negotiating a pay rise for the next financial year unless the current demands are being met. UK Health Minister Steve Barclay has expressed his deep regret that the medical ambulance service unions have taken this step, indicating that he will continue the dialogue with the unions with a view to reaching an agreement that puts end to the crisis.

Interestingly, Britain is watching in these days to a strong wave of protests by public sector workers due to the high rate of inflation in the country at a high rate. That directly affected household income.
