Nursing Strike in Minnesota Goes Forward as Planned
Yesterday, fourteen Minnesota hospitals saw fewer patients but performed about 140 surgeries and delivered about 15 infants during a one-day strike involving roughly 12,000 nurses in the state. Meanwhile, scores of California nurses staged rallies outside of six University of California facilities after a judge barred them from a strike that would have coincided with the Minnesota nursing strike.
