Thread Name: Tell me about Si Kahn...
Subject: RE: Tell me about Si Kahn...
Wyo. Just to add alittle to what brother Mick said with his usual eloquence... many workers in the health care industry and especially in nursing homes are paid so little and have benefits that are non existent, that they only stay until something better comes along. Unfortunately, all of us end up relying on those facilities for our grandparents, parents and other loved ones. It is in all of our interests to see the incentives increased, as well as training and certifications or licensing, for those workers. I have had the opportunity to visit the care facilities in my hometown, where both my parents spent the last few days of their lives, and the workers in both cases were wonderful...but few intended to stay. When Mick, or our sisters and brothers from the Unions that target these facilities to organize, show up get your friends and community out to support 'em. It'll be one more place us mudcatters can get to meet one and other...
