Wonder what you would find if you frisked the unions in California?
Answer: They are putting children’s lives at risk so they can demand an expansion of nursing positions in schools.
Nowadays, the question needs to be asked: Who’s really on the side of the children? Hint: Not the unions and never let them tell you any different! The video (posted above) from Reason TV is just another example of how big-labor is crippling our country:
Epilepsy advocates like the Epilepsy Foundation and physicians groups like the California Medical Association have lined up to support the bill. Unions representing teachers, nurses, and other public employees have lined up in opposition, claiming the bill would put children in danger. Their solution: hire more school nurses.
“The unions are not on the side of the kids,” says DeLorenzo who believes unions are more interested in expanding their ranks than protecting epileptic children.
“It’s exactly the opposite,” says Gayle McClean, southern section president of the California School Nurses Organization and a member of the California Teachers Association. ”We care deeply for children and we want them to receive the most appropriate care and that means they need a licensed medical person caring for them.”
Sacramento lawmakers sided with unions and have refused to bring the bill up for a vote. The bill will officially expire on August 31.
Remember, the FDA signed off on the use of Diastat and the syringe by non-medical personnel with just a little training. Protecting union jobs rather than saving epileptic children? This is absolutely appalling, but unfortunately it’s not surprising to me at all either. The State of California is overrun with governmental idiocy from the Left and big-labor unions (like the California Teachers Association) stuff their Democratic candidates’ pockets faster than a bank robber inside a vault when it comes to their campaigns.
Oh well… In the end, it’s just a matter of life and death. No biggie!
