Pleasanton Weekly article regarding nurses strike is mixed with half dozen topics. I am focusing on the strike against 34 Ca hospitals ! !
A full page Sutterd hospital article in today's CoCo/Valley Times is full of facts, that illustrates just how far out-of-touch unions are with life on the outside in 2011.
A few of the 34 are Sutter, Alta Bates, Eden, Kaiser, Children's hospital.
This union has called more than 100 Ca strikes in just the last 3 years alone ! !
Full-time nurses at Children's and Sutter average earnings in excess of $135,000 per year. (in THIS economy ?)
Most RNs receive at least one option for 100% employer-paid health insurance for their dependents ! ! (super-duper)
The unreasonable union demands unnecessarily increase costs for others.
The deadly sting of these unions are killing every faction of our society. Sad that nurses would allow their leaders to push the greed.
