Pay Cut for the Covid Front Liners

My brother in law has a wonderful daughter who works as a nurse in Denver during this pandemic. Her roommate has been quarantined with a positive Covid test. She the type of no nonsense caregiver that I would definitely want in a crisis.

Not nearly enough press has been given to the decisions hospitals are making when their elective surgeries have been surplanted by Covid cases. Having their bread and butter staying home to wait out the pandemic storm has resulted in huge red ink on their balance sheets.

The hospital administrator brought my brother in law’s daughter into his office and handed her a paycheck with half of what she was due.

Boy, was she pissed.
