    Who thinks the selected professions are BS? I don't get it. Why do they deserve it more than people who have shitty jobs like toilet cleaners, manure bag fillers, etc?

  •  

    none of the public sector people are keen about getting wet n wild, except maybe firefighters

  •  

    No worry, every one else can also get wet'n'wild for free. With Sydney's recent crazy wet and wild weather, you just have to go outdoor for your free treat :)

      My thoughts exactly.
      It's hardly like Doctors are unsung local heroes slogging it out for minimum wage.
      That's not to say that they do not work hard, blah, blah, blah but do they really need freebies at Wet and Wild on top of all the freebies they get from drug reps et al?
      Personally I don't see why teachers deserve it either but that's just me.
      Cops - huh, they already get plenty of freebies (and that's just the legit ones).
      I'd much rather the unpaid vollies than paid workers get freebies.

        True but nurses and similar do deserve it, they are often working double shifts at not much above minimum wage often in understaffed conditions and without much benefits. I think if you included all the others there it would be hard not to include Doctors.

          true but nurses and similar do deserve it,

          Nurses are quite well paid. Well above the average wage.

          @jv:

          when I'm sick or dying in hospital, I hope the person looking after me is above average

          Hopefully they will be trained and registered.

          @jv: My mum works in an ED.. The pay wouldn't motivate me when you get covered in a drunks spew, or chased around the ED by an ice addict tripping out, or ferals screaming and banging that their sniffle isn't being treated as a higher priority than someone having a heart attack. There's no security guards anymore (as the hospital budget has been slashed), so they have to wait for the cops to come.

          But her colleague got an unintentional benefit in having increased motivation to quit smoking when a patient she was working on drowned in his own blood after his lung cancer hemorrhaged.. Apparently it was the look of panic on his face that turned the trick.

          I'm just happy that there are people who are stupid enough to actually want to do this as a career. But I suppose people say that about IT too.

        In my opinion, a doctor who works in any of the public hospitals I have visited recently deserves the appreciation.

        Someone who works up to 16 hours with no break to make sure my loved one is okay, they deserve a free turn on a water slide. This goes for the nurses, paramedics, police and admin staff associated.

        @jv a majority of public health doctors are not making 300k base, not based on their award wages. And for the ones who are, 15+ years of studying to get to where they are is a hard thing to undermine.

          Many GPs make at least that… Specialists make a lot more…

      You missed "medical specialists". Everytime I go its about a 10 minute consult for $400.

      • +1 vote

        Yes, they deserve free Wet&Wild tickets too…

        They'll probably charge a fee whilst waiting in the queue.

    This is another stupidity of Australian businesses to believe Doctors are poor and allowing them free entry…!

      can't say they have had good management since they began, one disaster after another. I qualify but am not interested at all even being free I would rather go to qld

      Is it really about the money you make? I think the promotion was aimed towards what they view as high stress occupations.

      It's called a thankyou; to those in service who save the lives of Australians every day!

    The amount of butt hurt complainers in this thread is hilarious. Boohoo, you didn't get a free entry to wet n wild because you're not under one of the classified professions. Get over it.

    How do you prove your profession on entry?

    I went to this last year (teacher) and it was great. There was hardly anyone there, no lines until about 1pm, when im guessing families started coming in after their Saturday sport.
    Will probably go again this year, although i notice its 4 days this year. Was only saturday/sunday last year.

    What an odd promotion! A waterslide joint making value judgments on us all ;)

    YOU guys are "community heroes", but no, not YOU guys…
    Hmmm, you rehabilitate injured wildlife? Get outta here ya bum, no slidies for you!
    Hey, you with the excavator, get lost! You're only a CONTRACTOR when disasters happen, but here you are with your lame non-hero family: you make me sick!

    And my job just happens to qualify, I wonder if my boss would listen to Wet'n'Wilds testimony of my worth :)

    actually, I wouldn't want to go, those places are usually stinking cesspools of filth that only westy bogans go to because they dont live near the beach.

    At least if someone has a medical emergency on the day, they can be assured of plenty of help on hand.

    Next time, I'd like to see them include Uber drivers, and leave out the cabbies. Will be fun to watch the fallout on social media.

    Police won't have time to go. In the coming days, a lot of ID cards for these professional will get stolen. Extra workloads piling up for them.

    All those complaining that doctors and nurses get freebies are probably also the ones who won't say a word when they or their loved ones fall ill and require medical attention.
