Why does Stanford Hospital treat their nurses like crap and try to take advantage of them?


interesting facts about crona negotiations: upper management recieved 11%-26% increases, but nurses are offered only 1% for this year and 0.5% next. That's not even rate of inflation, its like losing salary every year.

    Because they can. Because the nurses allow it to happen. Are the unionized? I'm a proud union nurse and a member of a strong union, and we generally have pretty decent working conditions and working relationships in our health system.

    Bottom line is, you are either part of the problem or part of the solution. You can sit around and complain, or you can take action - whether working to make your own workplace better, or by cutting your losses and finding another job and seeing if the grass is greener.

    **Interesting fact: It's not just Stanford Hospitals who pay their executives inflated salaries and piss on the little people. It's every hospital. It's every business. Executive leadership in any company is full of the rich elite who only seek to make more money and preserve their social standing. They can't do that if they spread around the wealth.

    If you're not satisfied with your salary, go back to school and get your MBA and get a job in executive leadership. And then push for reform for more equitable pay. Good luck on that.
