Key workers have been defined by the government as those whose work is critical to the COVID-19 response in the UK, including those who work in health and social care, transportation, public services and more.

They are rightly being praised as heroes for their dedication and work throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, with many on the  front line helping to support patients with the virus. As such, more scrutiny is being placed on what they earn vs. what they are worth to the nation.

Analysing salary reports left by employees on the site, Glassdoor has compiled a list revealing what 15 different key workers get paid:
