It’s been said nobody wants to be on welfare/public assistance/whatever you want to call it. Nobody will willingly do such. Nope. No way.
I CALL BULLSHIT! And well, most folks who read my blog would too, but case-in-point-
This past week I “oriented” a new nurse who was offered the other LPN spot at our office.
She turned it down and the reason for such?
“If I work more than 8-10 hours a week, I’ll lose my benefits. And I’d have to pay for my own insurance!“
She has a nursing license, yet would rather keep her “benefits” than pull in roughly $900 a week?
And she had the nerve to look me in the eye and basically say, It’s okay for you to work and pay for my insurance as well as your own, but I don’t want to be bothered with doing the same?
I was slightly more than fit to be tied.
