If you havent seen Michael Moore's movie, SICKO, you must see it.
As with his other movies, it is very thought provoking.
I may not agree 100% with what he says - but he truely makes you think about things.
Do you know another profession that has very poor health care and retirement benefits?
Health care workers!
Yup, unless you work in a union hospital or in the Kaiser organization, you retire with no medical benefits and very poor retirement (except for your savings).
Many health care workers dont have any retirement except social security.
Now, isnt that a sad reflection on the system - those who have worked all those years providing health care - have none when they retire. What does that say about the American system?
