The result – nurses are quitting because they’re being mistreated, underpaid or not paid at all, and this is unacceptable. We deserve better, and nurses deserve better, too. Enough is Enough. It’s time for change in our Cook County Commissioners on down. Vote Benton Howser – to represent the best interests of all our citizens. Read the WBEZ article here.
