I salute the Alta Bates Medical Center Nurses. It does my heart good the life blood of the Hospital system is finally demanding a just and reasonable retirement, truth, warmth and respect from the Hospital where so many are treated. As I have over 50 years, I listened to the pleas, joined the protest, took pictures and intent to call out perpetrators of hardship and difficulty in contrast to a CEO who basks in the Sun with immensely high pay.
