XETV Fox6.com San Diego – Nurses On Strike – I just saw this story on TV. The nurses are striking because they don’t want to be paid on merit but on years of experience. They also want all nurses to be part of the union. What a load! Forced unionism is quite un-American and being paid just on your years of experience is silly. Once someone is in a union it is hard to get rid of them. So you’ll have some nurses who are crappy get paid more and more as they stay at their job. This is truly backwards.
