the nurses are not getting a 7.5% raise ... new contract gives them a 1% increase over the next 3 years ... not counting losses in alot of benifits, increased co-pays and the bite of gas steady inflation we took a 6% pay cut ..

.the union heads sold out its members taking Fist or first offer ; mean while CEO takes home multi million bonus for buying a relatives 1980's computor system a floppy disk ? please ...

the new 1980 system has increased patient fall rates ...for employees are baffled wasting patient time on spread sheets and 30 yr old programs ... meanwhile nurses bitch about it to a CEO system that like all leaders say everything is fine on their twisted tv sale pitches ... chosing to be blind to the caos they spread due to their inherent greed for money they will never spend or spread via tinkle down theory
