Fifty fuss?

Modern Healthcare - - Opinions Letters -

The union at Jack­son Health Sys­tem won’t budge on be­ing asked to add a $50 in­crease to their bi­weekly pre­mium con­tri­bu­tion (“Jack­son unions say no to more pay cuts,” Daily Dose, April 22)? And as a re­sult a birthing cen­ter will close and a bunch of this group’s co-work­ers will lose their jobs? This is a clas­sic ex­am­ple of the mad­ness that unions are try­ing to force on hos­pi­tals, gov­ern­ments and other em­ploy­ers right now.

At this time in Amer­ica’s his­tory when dou­ble-digit mil­lions of Amer­i­cans are un­em­ployed or se­verely un­der­em­ployed and un­told mil­lions of Amer­i­cans who are work­ing and are not union­ized have seen se­vere de­creases in their in­come, the union can­not agree to pay $50 bi­weekly for a ben­e­fit mil­lions of Amer­i­cans would cry to have ac­cess to?

I be­lieve that union be­hav­iors like this will lead to an end re­sult of ever-in­creas­ing amounts

of back­lash against them. Good luck with that. Sorel Di­et­zler
