Looks like labor issues not vaccine issues.

The constitution is quite clear. No one can be forced to take any medicine ( including an aspirin) against his/her will. No exceptions are allowed. Persuasion????Fine...Required???Not in our country..

I think they anticipated this years ago, when they made the film "Rampaging Nurses".

No...The film is actually called, "Rampaging Lefties." ( Way ahead of its time. )

It's about safety and staffing. It's about having too many patients and not enough doctors and nurses which affects the quality of care provided. As I have said before the pandemic doesn't help as you would be hard-pressed to find someone working in medicine who isn't exhausted and stressed at all levels of employment after the last two years. The amount of human suffering and death that has been seen over the last couple of years takes its toll on those tasked with providing treatment. It doesn't help when Kaiser was estimated to have made $6 million a day during the pandemic and is holding cash reserves of $44 Billion as a nonprofit which would place them 34TH on the Forbes Fortune 500 list if they weren't classified as a nonprofit.

Funny that you think you can plug nurses from another country into the U.S. healthcare system. First, there are licensing and vaccination requirements that would have to be resolved and I'm not talking about COVID vaccinations. Both licenses and vaccines would have to be verified. Did the nurses from another country take the same classes as US nurses? What are the visa issues that need to be resolved? How are you going to test the knowledge of the Canadian nurses who apply? Are they going to need to take a licensing exam to confirm their medical knowledge of U.S. medicine? It is difficult for a US citizen to work in Canada and requires time and a lot of paperwork before you can get approval. That's just a few of the administrative issues that need to be resolved before Canadian nurses could even step through the door. Then you would have workplace dynamics to contend with. Canadian nurses taking jobs from U.S. nurses. I can tell you that from observing nurses, they are protective of each other and interlopers will not be tolerated. The Canadian nurses will be shunned and told "you should know how to do that you have a license and it's not my job to teach you." If a Canadian nurse made a mistake and a patient was injured or died you can't imagine the shyte storm that would be created and pressed by the unions. The cost associated with bringing in foreign nurses is prohibitive when housing, agency fees, and salaries are factored in. All of the above will have to be resolved to bring in foreign nurses for 2 to 4 weeks before the strike is resolved. Why would Canada who is having its own nursing shortage give the okay for Canadian nurses to come to the U.S. instead of using their vaccine mandate, possible unemployment, money, and time to force their nurses to get vaccines to resolve their nursing shortage

Who do you believe?

SWA or Tucker Carlson and Lyin' Ted Cruz?

No need to answer that because I already know the answer.
