Letter: Workers’ strike at Sequoia Hospital
October 10, 2013, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

I’m generally supportive of workers’ rights and strikes. However, I am dismayed by the behavior of the striking workers at Sequoia Hospital. I cannot imagine how anyone in the profession of caring for people would intentionally cause traffic jams in front of a hospital. Imagine someone rushing to get to the emergency room only to be blocked by the traffic created by these strikers. Apparently these strikers are indifferent to the well-being of the people they ostensibly serve in their jobs. Intentionally creating traffic jams in front of a hospital is immoral and shameful.

If these workers are trying to gain sympathy for their cause, they should change their tactics. They’ve lost at least one supporter.
