No Scabs Here

I had a phone message from some nursing agency calling for "nurses in all specialties" to work at a northwestern Mass. hospital for, get this, STRIKE coverage.

The offer included guaranteed 36 hours of pay, per diem, housing, travel, meal allowance, heck, probably even manicures and pedicures. My response?


Other than starvation (which,regretfully, wouldn't be happenin' anytime soon for me) there is not a single reason in the world that would entice me to cross a picket line. Not even for a million bucks.
