I recently excepted a new position at a surgery center. About two weeks after I started the surgeons I work for decided to change the policies under which I was hired. In doing so, they have changed the policies which now states that I will not be paid for any holidays until I have been there six months (which pretty much takes Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas & possibly New Years) Also, they have taken away many of the benefits for which I was given when I was hired. I guess my question is, Has anyone had this sort of problem and what did you do? I have been a Nurse for 8 years so I have plenty of experience that would help me in finding another job, but I am giving serious thought to get out of nursing altogether. A friend of mine who also is a nurse (for many years) said "Nursing is the only profession in which the longer you work, the less important you are to those for which you work!"
