A Nurse's Strike...for $18 a Paycheck? Really?

I watched a news report this morning on a nurse's strike at two hospitals in Long Beach - Long Beach Memorial and Miller's Children's Hospital.  According to the report the nurses have an average salary of $93,000 a year and one of the major points of contention is they're being asked to pay an additional $18 per paycheck for health care.

$18 a paycheck.

We currently pay over $500 per month for our family's healthcare through my wife's employer.

Get back to work, nurses, or find something else to do.
