Please help your fellow Nurses in Orlando they are desperate. Orlando Health has spit in the face of Nursing. Please help them by signing a petition to stop this huge pay cut at change.org http://www.change.org/petitions/orla...cuts-to-nurses
"Orlando Health announced Monday, August 5 that they will be cutting the night and weekend shift differential to thousands of employees, across 8 area hospitals, to go in effect September 8. These cuts are more than 50% of the current rate and will result to each an individual loss upwards of $600/month, $7000-$15,000/year. A majority of the employees affected are Nurses, who are already notoriously underpaid and overworked. Corporate members are denying any request for negotiations, and gave less than 1-month notice for employees to acclimate to this substantial financial blow. The Orlando health corporation decided they want to decrease pay significantly, with no decrease in employee workload."
PLEASE! Your help is desperately needed.

Learning to live on $15,000 less a year takes longer than one month.
You can't take $ 600 a month from anybody and expect them to stay financially afloat.
Another example of nurses being on the bottom of the food chain.
My thoughts are with the FL nurses.
I fear the loss of shift differential is the face of the future.
We've lost on call pay. Call back pay. Pay to work through lunch.
Just when I thought they'd cut everything, I forgot about shift differential.
