1199 has infested and destroyed many homes. It sounds like you are very fortunate to be in one of the few that they haven't.

The people who are striking in Colchester are striking to keep their current benefits, not gain anything new. Genesis Healthcare owns and operates 200 nursing facilities throughout the country, and had enough money this year to purchase new facilities, including in CT. They bought out several of the Haven Health facilities, and actually abandoned the facility in Jewitt City, letting it close. The staff at Harrington is wonderful, very helpful, caring hard working individuals. My mother stayed there for a time after a surgery, and loved it. The nurses and CNAs were occasionally understaffed and overworked, but they didn't miss a beat. They are not pigs, or scumbags. These people are working to care for your family that you can't or won't care for, doing their best to make a difference in their lives every day. Who are you to judge people you do not know. I think the workers have every right to strike, just like any other union job, to keep their benefits and especially to ensure staffing ratios and quality care.
Strike on!

But when you people go public and say you are not losing any existing benefits, cry me a river. Look around you Cheech, while everyone else is GIVING BACK you decide not to demand any concessions or new benefits.

Good for you that you have a union that will fight for unreasonable demands during these economic times.

The thing is they can't use the same old "whoa is me" chant they usually use because, as of this moment, EVERYONE has the same story. So good luck, but if you are looking for sympathy, go talk to another union member.

Just give it some more time and it will happen. Have fun and watch the UAW try to run the auto industry, the CT teachers union ruin our school system, and the beat goes on.
So, all you left-wing do-gooders keep on voting in the democrats and watch the unions grow and watch your taxes go into orbit. But, afterall, you'll feel good inside thinking you are so virtuous and thinking everyone else hates all of humanity. Get those rich people while you're at it. Crush evil business and closedown Wall Street. getGen all!
