Nursing Home Staff Go On Strike Due To Reduced Benefits And Pay

A nursing home company that has paid out a $13.2 million lawsuit to a family for negligence of care to their loved one is now under fire from caregivers. The nursing home union workers are on strike due to issues with reduced benefits and pay that they say goes against labor laws.

One worker had this to say about it, "It is incredibly irresponsible of the company to repeatedly disregard workers' rights and force caregivers into a position where striking is the last option they have. We do not want to strike, but we will not allow this company to undermine standards in nursing homes." For more, read the story.
