Real RNs Speak Out: Marcia Whitman

9 Mar

MNA RNs are weighing in about the devastating impact the so-called “Right to Work” legislation would have on everyday Minnesota families. Here’s just one of the heartfelt letters MNA RNs are sending to their local legislators:

I am writing in opposition to the right to work bill. I would like my voice heard! This bill is totally unnecessary, unfair and furthermost UNSAFE. I am an RN, this amendment would put my patients at risk because it would make it much harder to negotiate and advocate for things like safe staffing.

This amendment will take the power from the workers and put more power into the hands of the CEO’s. We do not need this especially in these economic times. This amendment is unnecessary. Minnesota has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country. Why risk lower wages and benefits when the states economy is starting to recover?

Sincerely,

Marcia Whitman
