#Lean Shouldn't be a Reason for Nurses to Strike

Updated about 1 year ago.

A retired labor leader from the automotive industry (who reads this blog) sent me a link to this article:

#RedforMed: 1,800 Vermont Nurses Are On Strike Demanding Their Hospital Put Patients Over Profits
The article isn't from a newspaper; it's from a site that provides "independent and incisive coverage of the labor movement and the struggles of workers to obtain safe, healthy and just workplaces."

Again, for the record, I'm all in favor of "safety, healthy, and just workplaces." That's what Lean management aims to deliver.
