I suppose this will fill up with posts blaming the nurses.
But what they will mean is "Lets let the health care go to the lowest bidder" just like what they say about teachers.

The GOP types will cm on here and say these nurses(who do 3/4 of the work in a clinic or hospital) should be fired...Oh yes let it go to the lowest bidder. Oh yes I want a nurse helping me who makes minimum wage and hates her job because of how little she makes like a teller at walmart. Why is it that to a GOP type a ceo should make many millions with multi million dollar bonuses why he does less and less every year but nurses who do more and more every year should make less????

Sounds like you have never been to a hospital staffed with H-1B visa nurses. You are in for a rude awakening my friend. Be sure to bring a translator, so that you can understand the mumbling and have an advocate who will watch over the treatment that will surely be needed when they shove an implement into you that carries MRSA or C-diff. I would prefer to pay an American nurse for my care, at any cost and reduce the administrator's salary or CEO who could give a rat's a$$ about your outcome or care.

Hope the nurses get what they want, heck double their wages, health care bills will just go up, its like a tax, the business passes the cost to the consumer. Then the same people on here will complain about the cost of health care.

the ceo,s and exec,s and board members have seen there wages double if not triple....So I guess your ok with that but if a working persons wages go up----OH HECK NO WE CANT HAVE THAT.....They dont want double...But every year they are asked to do more and more and more wokr for the same wages.....How is that fair that they dont want more pay...??? Come on be honest if you had to work harder and harder every year and seen no increase in pay or benefits you would be mad also.

Like I said I hope they can get what they want, just that the price of health care goes up, shoot me if you want but its a fact.
I am for anyone in the private sector getting what they can, its called freedom.

These bums will find any excuse to sit at home, doing nothing, yet still collecting a paycheck. Fire them all!!!!!

Really, are nurses anything more than a glorified janitor? Let's face it, most moms do more at home taking care of their kids with a box of bandaids and cough syrup from the local drug store than these bums do all day.

If they dump the union they will lose alot of pay and benefits. The union is what keeps there pay at a livable wage. Without unions in this nation and the threat of unions coming into a place businesses would lower wages and lower benefits faster then you can imagine. Where I work is union and has been fro many decades. Our bosses flat out told us straight if there was no union our wages would go down ALOT. That is FACT. Unions keep the workingclass from being poor.

Take an oath?
You mean like the nurses that have been stealing pain med's from sick patients we've been hearing about over the last year or so?
That oath?

Ofcourse real reality is only what you percieve it as. Have you heard that headline about nurses giving their heart and soul to patients? What you haven't?
You know I just farted. But since you didn't hear about it...I guess I really didn't...rofl

Actually no.
No such headline like that here.
Just stealing med's. One nurse even told the patient she stole from to " Man up " and deal with the pain.
I suppose you see that headline out in California, nothing but a state of bleeding hearts.
And oh yeah, your broke from too many gov't hand outs. Go hug a tree.
