    Nasty Nate, you had better hope that you are not in hospital one of these days and depending on a nurse to look after you. Your attitude is horrible. br br If you are so busy, how do you find the time to spend all day commenting on these stories? You're obviously full of it.

    To start with, I do not use the hospital system in this province. Remember if it is not good enough for Danny, then it is not good enough for you (me).

    Second, I did not complain about my hours nor the lack of time I spend at home for the income I have. I picked my path, and receive the proper compensation for it. You do not see people in my profession crying to government at any chance we can for this or that.

    The Nurses and those unions keep taking and not returning quality service for the compensation they receive from the rest of us. This is the issue that you are trying to cloud over. They complain that they needed more money to entice staff. Well they received that. Now they say they are still not able to entice staff since they need more time off to spend the increased wages. Well tough. It is either more money, or more time off. They want more time off, then do not expect to be paid for it. Workload too stressful, then leave. Stop crying for more and more. The bank is broke Debbie and company. You made sure of that.

    Must be a lot of Nurses on vacation or playing sick today to be defending their right to take and take. I am off packing to move if it really matters. But rest assured I will continue to voice my concerns here once back working the 10 to 16 hour days after I move.

    Nate sure has a way of controlling these sites , sometimes he doesn't even have to be there, to show how he exercises his power . He really knows how to press those buttons ......

    Nutty Nate your understanding of the nurses' contract negotiations with gov back then was very poor, and today, it is even worse. It's good to see Kennedy show up at a nurses' convention still pledging to fix the original and foremost problems the nurses had to contend with all along. But we all knew it would (and will) take time. Anyways, that's correct Nutty, you can't cry to gov at your place of work at McDonald's since it is not a gov job. Furthermore, the nurses don't need to attract new recruits, government does. Government is the employer not the nurses. So government has to do whatever necessary to attract and retain them. Whatever it takes is called law of supply and demand, and no one person makes up that formula. You find out what it is through trial and error. You realize everyone laughs at you, don't you Nutty ? If you can't see that, you should seriously seek help.

    Nasty Nate's first hospital stop should be the Waterford! He must prove to be mentally stable before the physicians at the Health Science will take a look at him. I doubt Nate will pass the test!

    Hasty Hate what are you reading ? I think you commented on the wrong page. Nurses aren't demanding anything, Kennedy just came along and decided to help out this part of healthcare as part of an overall healthcare reform in this province. Not only that, I can only say, ignorance is bliss isn't it ? But one thing is for sure, your job doesn't sound the way you bragged about it some time ago. Sounds like your job really sucks ! How revealing ;) No wonder you are such a tormented and frustrated person. You should get an education and improve your lot in life like the nurses. Have a nice day fool.

    Guess my contributions pay your welfare as well as the other lazy bums wages. Too bad the ethics shown here are lacking so much. Maybe once you all are forced to work for your public housing and welfare my taxes would come down a few more points. Till that time comes I will take each and every opportunity to voice my displeasure at those that feel they deserve far more then they are contributing such as the Nurses. They have a choice to leave the profession and open the doors to those that wish to contribute for the sake of contributing, not for what they think they can take from it. br br That is the problem on the island. Everyone thinks they are owed something, but do not want to give anything more then needed to obtain it. Keep taking, soon there will be no one left to pay for this type of behaviour. The oil will not pay for this for much longer, just remember that next time around.

    Do you contribute for the sake of contributing ? Or do expect to be paid while contributing ? Why don't you try listening to yourself to see how foolish you sound. Where in the above article does it say the nurses are demanding anything ? Kennedy is talking about things he became aware of last year and continues to be aware of. You suck at reading comprehension, I guess that's why you have a sucky job. Didn't anyone ever tell you those two mail order degrees wouldn't be worth the paper they were written on ? Even if you had a real education, your lack of people skills will always hold you back from ever having a job other than that McDonald's job you mention and know all about. Now go flip my burger you buffoon.

    Kennedy said the province has to attract more nurses to improve their quality of life. br br br Since when does quantity equal quality ? Stalin may have said 'Quantity has a quality all it's own,' but in this case, policy changes, shift types (8h to 12h), call-in rules (or lack thereof), et cetera over the past decade or more has disassembled any way of normal life for nurses. It's not all in the numbers, it's in the smarts just as much. So with Stalin... err, I mean Kennedy at the helm, the prognosis doesn't look encouraging.

    Enjoying working 10 hour + days? Whatever floats your boat Nate, but it appears that you don't have much of a life outside of work. How can you have any idea what nurses do if you don't use the hospital system in this province. You're talking through your hat as usual.

    You think that you have it all figured out, don't you Nate. No welfare here, I cut my own path - and that doesn't include working for a wage. There are plenty of ways to meet your financial needs without having to rely on a job or hand outs, and I make more and pay less taxes than you do. With 2 degrees you'd should know that you'd be aware of that possibility. You say nurses have a choice - you also have a choice. If you don't like what you have to pay for health care - leave. Now, get back to work and pay some more health care bills please, and don't get stressed, we wouldn't want you to end up costing your fellow taxpayers money unnecessarily :)
