The nurse emphasises that for this particular shift that started at eight o'clock on Christmas night and ended at eight o'clock the next day, i.e. 12 hours of work, he received 820 euros gross (500 euros net).

In the comments, he mentions that the nurse's salary in Ireland is 4,000 euros gross, about 3,200 euros net. To the question of a user of the application, if "he has 500 left a month to save," the nurse replies that he manages and saves more.
