What state should I move to now the Washington State legislature is trying to force me to work seven days a week? (HB 1155)

Does anybody have any insight into the best states for nurses as far as pay, cost of living, etc?

Have you read the bill?

No. I have never read any bill.

While I think what’s happening in Washington state is onerous I’m confused how you think HB 1155 is going to force you to work 7 days a week.

8 hour shifts x 7 days a week = 56 hours worked/week

The bill is not forcing you to work 56 hours/week.

I don't agree with the bill, but it helps no one's cause to be hyperbolic.

But why not? It affects you. Apparently enough that you're considering moving to a different state over it. It boggles my mind that you wouldn't actually READ the bill and know what you're arguing against.

Yeah, I’m poor enough that I often need to work that many hours a week, so it isn’t hyperbole.

It boggles my mind to find out that you apparently read every bill proposed in your state legislature (and the US Congress as well, I suppose, since that also affects us.)

Of course I don't read every bill. But I read bills that affect me personally. Particularly if it affects me to the point where I'm going to Allnurses to ask about it, I would certainly familiarize myself with the contents therein.

I’m sorry for your circumstances but the bill isn’t forcing you to work 7 days a week.

Oh, then I’m assuming you read the new tax law that just went into effect? How was that 1000+ page read?

The bill you made a thread about is what, 4 or 5 pages long? Not really comparable.

I’m not here, posting on Allnurses about how the tax law is screwing me personally. If I were, you bet I would at least READ about it first.
