Poll: Czechs value doctors the most

Czechs most value the work of doctors, scientists, nurses and university professors a new poll conducted by the CVVM agency suggests. Respondents in the survey ranked 26 professions on a 99-point scale. The worst-ranked on the scale were MPs, government ministers and cleaning personnel. According to CVVM, the result shows that doctors’ reputations were unhurt, for example, by a long-term campaign to boost salaries. More than 500 people aged 15 and higher took part in the poll, which was conducted in June.
