    NO I would not...I'm from Savannah and Nurses are going to Northern Cali because of the strike for five days.A few got upset when I explained to them that crossing your fellow Nurses picket line is a major insult/disrespectful to say the least...Back in the day crossing a picket line was met with great harm.I dont think it gets that bad these days but the principle is to respect what the Nurses are striking for. We NEED our own Union here in Georgia, but with this "Good Ole Boy System". FEAR rules the South!!! I dont think it would ever happen here. But many of the nurses are going for the money.I'm just glad the all mighty dollar has not made me lose my mind...

    After the Civil War, the South merely exchanged slaves for employees! JMHO and my NY $0.02.

    I absolutely would cross a picket line; especially if there was an opportunity opening up for full time employment with benefits of any kind. And in this job market!
