Today’s card, VIII of Pentacles, is dedicated to all us workers who keep on keeping on. And since I need to keep on getting ready for my own job, here’s a quick link to a voice for workers in the health industry- Service Employees International Union.
Amnesty International Backs Nurses & Caregivers Standing Up For Quality Care & Good Jobs
Amnesty International Executive Director Steven W. Hawkins joined nurses and healthcare workers at Mt. Sinai Medical Center for their picketing yesterday, and pledged the support of Amnesty’s 3 million activists.
“Workers’ rights are human rights. Fair pay is a human right. Equity is a human right. And quality healthcare benefits are a human right,” said Hawkins. “Amnesty International stands with 1199SEIU and the 110,000 nurses and caregivers in negotiations. We demand dignity for healthcare workers as they care for our families and communities.”
Have a good one on this hot, sweet, long day of July.
