Ending of petty rows could help boost job hopes

I READ with interest the report on the plight of paramedics which cost £40,000 to train in Northern Ireland and their difficulty in seeking employment (News, July 1).

It is not only paramedics who find difficulty in finding a job in NI. Nearly all professions have difficulty especially new GPs, emergency department doctors, nurses and other specialists.

My family left many years ago for this very reason and I can see we made the right decision as the situation has not improved.

If politicians could stop squabbling over flags, parades and the past and plan a future economy it would be more productive.
