HEALTH CARE UNDER THREAT
« on: March 03, 2012, 03:18:45 PM »
I would like to ask people to help with the nurses strike we are experiencing in Australia at the moment. State Government and the Health minister plan to replace nurses with 6 week accredited diploma course graduates to care for the sick. Nurses have gone and strike and have been threatened with imprisonment, fines, sackings and worst of all, Government is using tax payers money to hire lawyers to shut down the Australian Nurses Federation facebook webpage. This is over and beyond free will, freedom of speech and for those of us with HIV, this new regime of care will not be adequate if left in the hands of amateurs. Please follow the link and sign the petition the help a very worthy cause.

I endorse Hudstar's comments and encourage people to follow this up. What is happening in Victoria is shocking.

From the other side of the world I just wanted to lend a voice of support for the hard working nurses of Australia who just want fair pay and decent benefits for their hard working efforts and their great dedication.  Here in the states our hospitals, often with a board of directors, etc., receiving very nice compensation packages themselves are also diligently working toward presenting less pay and little or no health benefits packages for our nurses, often with a take it or leave it attitude.  As the robber barons used to do back in the 1800's they would offer an alternative of the worker taking oh so little or nothing at all.  The bashing of working class folks continues vigorously worldwide it would seem.
