Nurse Follies: The Strike Chronicles

I've always wondered about nurses who go on strike. Not because I want to try it out, but about the anatomy of it. The only things I hear about what they are paying those who cross the picket line to work (scabs). Believe it or not, there is an area devoted entirely to scab nursing. Sure, the money is phenomenal, but at what cost?

Anyway, I've been reading Madness for a while, and their experiences with contract negotiations and subsequent strike has been a fascinating read. If you ever wanted to know the inner workings of a nurse strike, go check it out.

Offering words of support wouldn't hurt either.
