I know we all have times where we feel like our employers don't appear to value us very much.
But I think our manager has completely lost her mind.
A few weeks ago two of our core staff on the day shift decided they wanted to try the traveler thing. Our manager Ok'd for them to take a 13 week "leave of abscence, at the same time. Now bear in mind that we only have about 10 core staff for this shift. We staff an average of 5-7 nurses a day.
One of the girls immediately hated it and wanted to come back. Her only problem was she had to reimburse the traveler agency almost 1000.00 to break her contract. She came and asked our manager if they wouldn't pay this for her so she could come back now. THEY DID.
Last week I worked 60++ hours and as a token of appreciation I got some hand lotion.
I Love this girl she is my friend. She is an asset to the unit, but this whole situation makes me very very angry
I guess I am just having a hard time swallowing the notion that I and my other co-workers are worth some hand lotion and others are worth large sums of cash money.
