Hospital nurses get fired for going public with patient safety concerns, which is why they were opting to unionize long before the pandemic. Hospital managements in recent years have stretched nurses to the breaking point, increasing the ratio of patients they are responsible to care for while paying substandard wages given their responsibilities and health risks, as well as curbing their benefits. In addition to being treated badly by hospital managements, nurses are often disrespected by physicians and patients.

Nursing, teaching, policing, any service job gets no respect. It’s what is causing this “great-resignation” which is more of a move to less stress.
