>Nurses represented by the union voted by 93% in favor of a strike authorization as the union’s contract expired on 31 March and 30 bargaining sessions over the past three months have yet to yield a tentative agreement. The union has criticized the lack of participation from nursing administrators in bargaining sessions. This would be the first time they have gone on strike since 2000. **93%** in favor! I didn’t think you could get that many people to agree on anything, but 2 years of saving lives during a pandemic only for administrators to try to make benefits **worse**? That boils my blood.

the CEO’s and top staff are all like, “let’s put a sign, no no, better yet, an airplane! and fly a banner that says ‘thank you heroes for fighting covid!” HAHA. this is what happens when you have profits before patients. a shitty, disorganized healthcare system

I’m burnt out and tired of the bedside. Have an interview at a dialysis center tomorrow. There’s not enough therapy in the world for all the healthcare workers out there.
