This week, more than 23,000 nurses and other frontline healthcare providers are walking out on Kaiser for a one day strike. They have a simple message: provide quality healthcare, not just $8 million salaries for CEO George Halvorson and millions more for Ben Chu and other hired hands.
What's more, Kaiser has spent $700,000 lobbying their interests in Sacramento in just the first half of this year. That includes stalling AB 52, the law that would have put their rate increases under government control. Why? Because the bosses there are greedy.
