108 ‘VIRTUAL’ CARER-STRIKERS = 2,592 ‘VIRTUAL’ STRIKE HOURS = £38,880 VIRTUAL COST TO THE STATE

bank-england_£24 hours after the Carers’ Virtual Strike went live, our 108 signed-up virtual strikers would cost £38,880 to replace for an average caring day. That’s FOURTEEN MILLION, ONE HUNDRED AND NINETY ONE THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED POUNDS (£14,191,200)  to pay for a year of their care.

14,191,200 is roughly the number of minutes Nelson Mandela was imprisoned on Robben Island over 27 years. A very very big number.

There are 1.4million fulltime family carers in this country.

Do the maths!
