What’s with the sudden hate on for nurses by United Conservative Party supporters?
It comes from somewhere. Your average UCP internet troll doesn’t just come up with this stuff on his – or ocsionally her – own.
The traditional Conservative approach to attacking nurses and other predominantly public and female employee groups for their opposition to neoliberal austerity policies and the harm they do is to express great regard, even fondness, for these widely respected groups, but to disparage their unions.
This was the strategy adopted by Alberta Finance Minister Travis Toews last Friday as he sought to justify pay cuts and layoffs for Registered Nurses and other public employees included in the ongoing UCP government austerity binge that’s required to finance billions of dollars in tax cuts for billionaires and profitable corporations.
“We have the highest respect and admiration for all public sector workers. These potential changes do not change the value we place on their dedition to Albertans,” Mr. Toews said in the final pro forma line of the government’s news release that day.
You n take that for what it’s worth – not much, it’s said here, especially given the strong international market for RNs’ services and the UCP’s claims to believe in the freedom of the market – but at least it’s polite.
So whatever is prompting unusual critil commentary about nurses as a group that’s starting to be posted…
