Do strikes do anything anymore? There are already tons of illegals that will be given free NYC college educations that will replace these nurses. Illegals will not even need to fill out job applications for these nurse jobs. These nurses are on their way to being replaced by the illegals.

I didn't realize there were healthcare workers in the city that weren't part of 1199. Staffing ratios are a big deal and hospitals cut and cut until the employees are wrung dry and patient safety becomes a real issue.

According to one website, the average base salary of an RN in NYC is $86,000 + overtime + benefits. Many RNs earn over $100,000 per year. Hospitals that treat a lot of Medicare and Medicaid patients take a loss on actual treatment costs because the government pays only a fraction of what's billed. Why don't the nurses agree to take a salary cut so hospitals can hire more personnel?

Why not cut the salary of the CEO?
Many of the doctors and those in management are earning over
750k a year. If they each reduce their salary by 100k they could hire hundred more nurses.
According to the article the nurses main issue is patient safety.
They are understaffed and overworked. Not underpaid. Why should they take a salary cut when they are not in the top 2% of earners at their institutions.
