The front of Detroit News/Detroit Freepress had articles on Nursing shortage.

I was especially interested in the article about the woman who had been a nurse for 40 years, served as an Army nurse in WWII, and was only receiving a $497 per month pension.
What a disgrace! I have heard many retired nurses complain about the inadequate pensions that they receive. This blatant discrimination has got to stop!
Also, I am amazed at the hospital's comment that they think their "staffing is adequate." Gee, we don't know what these nurses are talking about? How much longer do hospitals think that they can make this claim, when all the evidence points to the contrary?
