    Johns Hopkins. Many hospitals don't have unionized nurses and other occupations. not-for-profit hospitals function like businesses despite their nonprofit status. they tend to prioritize cost-cutting and upper-level salaries over blue-collar wages and work rules. Unions try to get hospitals to hire more staff, reducing disparities in patient care. When one nurse is responsible for 20+ patients, quality of care goes downhill.
