So, Marion, do you know of another demographic that is qualified and willing to do the work?
Yes, TWO qualifications above - qualified AND willing. Not affirmative actioned in and surly.
Actually nurses have been being replaced by ‘guest workers’ for the same reason as high techies - cheap labor. Nursing is another field that has been labeled ‘jobs americans can’t / won’t do’.
Hospitals have been crying labor shortage while firing experienced, proven US nurses, and refusing to hire new grads because they are not experienced. This is a great scam - cry shortage, get people to go into debt for a college education and hire cheap labor from overseas.
