Its called greed. They charge you or the government $100,000 a year and pay the help $8.00 dollars and hour. Managemnet makes over $150,000 a year. Westgate is no better where elderly sit in poop amd are not feed. What a screwed up country America has become.

The March report detailed 10 repeat violations of state and federal regulations meant to protect the health, safety and care of nursing home residents. The same report documented 15 others — from residents who feared retaliation if they complained about a staff member to the failure to treat residents with dignity to food not being served at the right temperature.

Hold everything. What ethnicity are 90% of the hourly workers. Could this have been a factor?
