Nurses fighting the Man! - The Rancho Commons — LiveJournal
Note to self: no whining, no slacking
Nurses fighting the Man!
I found a link to this site and singled out this article about nurses striking in Pikeville, Kentucky. I take heart in the hope that change can come to a health care industry in which the nurses are the backbone, but are treated like unwanted step-children. Of course, there is tremendous union strength and support in the region, something lacking here in my area.

I believe unionization, with all of its inherent evils (internal power struggles, political chicanery, and potential corruption) would still be better than what we have now, which is nothing. We remain at the mercy of hospital administration, and that is not a favorable place for nurses anywhere.
