Quote from cardiacRN2006
Well, my mother is one of those nurses going on strike this weekend. I can't help but feel incredibly offended that they are bringing nurses in from Hawaii. Where's the Aloha?
I went on strike the last time the "Big Five" went on strike here in Hawaii.
Yes, there are those who would sell out their fellow nurses for the almighty dollar, all the time saying they are only "concerned about the patients."
EVERY ONE of the nurses I knew who crossed the picket line did it for strictly monetary reasons. To each his own, but "concern for patients" was far in the background.
Good luck to your Mom, CardiacRN. It's a tough thing to go through. But when all is said and done, it really does make you realize how little we are worth to the institutions we work for.
