Last month, we wrote to you about the hospital industry’s nightmarish plan to increase profits by sending sick patients home to receive “care,” instead of at the hospital where they belong.
But that’s not the only part of their “Home All Alone” scheme. They are taking it a step further: The industry is trying to take a page out of Uber’s playbook and attempting to misclassify nurses as independent contractors and turn these jobs into gig work.
We know what this is all about: increasing profits at the expense of professional caregivers and quality patient care. They want to outsource care from registered nurses to less-trained, non-union health care workers (or even worse, onto untrained and unpaid family members).
To learn more about this dangerous scheme and why it matters in our fight to win Medicare for All, will you join us for the second webinar in our Summer 2022 Public Education Webinar Series, ‘Uber for Nurses? The “Gigification” of Health Care’?
