Stretched thin already, Wisconsin nurses prepare for Corona Virus – WPR.org
I’m married to a nurse. They bust their asses every single day doing some of the most challenging work necessary in our society. Everyone can see that a lot more clearly now. We have experienced first-hand the shortages and shortcomings described in this article since Governor Scott Walker eliminated the nurse’s union and collective bargaining rights. My wife has not had a legitimate raise since that time and we have seen a steady increase in the cost of our healthcare benefits; along with a decrease in services. That problem continues today.
Many of the most glaring shortcomings in American society are being exposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. This is one of the most urgent and important for all of us and especially for these incredibly courageous, devoted, diligent and selfless servants.” –john c ashworth on 3/21/2020
