No wonder there's a shortage of social workers

Fair point, well made by Polly Toynbee about society's need to vilify social workers whatever their decisions. Who'd be a social worker with the massive responsibility for people's lives in their hands? Many of us worry about our jobs but how many wake up in the middle of the night worrying we have wrecked people's futures or that a decision made or not made led to a child's death? No wonder then that there is a shortage of people who want to take on that heavy and responsible role.
