    So we've been treated now to two-and-a-half years of Reichtards like the OP claiming that the deadly pandemic was overblown, no big deal, masks and social distancing are tyranny, the vaccines are poison, etc. Would YOU want to spend the rest of your career taking care of morons who can't even take simple steps to avoid the hospital? A lot of physicians and nurses are going into office work -- there is a huge job market for them in the managed care (health insurance) industry. I spent the last three years of my own nursing career in that field. Better pay, much better hours, better benefits, etc.

    Those "low-wage essential health care workers" are typically CNAs, patient care techs, radiology techs, etc. Ditto for them. They work shit hours for shit pay, are exposed to COVID and other cooties, looked down on by pandemic-deniers. The job market for them in other industries is booming too. So why stay where you're not valued by the patients/employers?
    Nurses/Aids are required to use a new mask every day. They aren't given a supply for the week. They must be given one each day.

    Try wearing an N95 fresh out of a box/stack for 12 hours without a break.

    The ink leaves a chemical vapor that is intoxicating. The rush to produce them also must entail a different grade of material, as many nurses are having bad skin reactions.
    Once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

    People moving from jobs where they are poorly paid and underappreciated to far better jobs = crashing? Only in your psychotic POV. You want to keep the caste system going. No wonder ppl here think you're a Chinese agent rather than an American.

    Yep. I bought my youngest daughter some for her to wear in her classroom. She has MS and therefore is a high risk immunocompromised person. When the mask mandates were lifted last school year in her state (Illinois) she asked the parents of her students to please continue to give them masks. They all did, bless their hearts. But she had the same problems you mentioned -- skin breakouts.

    Stop refusing to read. I've aleady pointed out the exact reason in my first post. How can you be so clueless?

    Any sector that puts profits first has the same issue. They cut back on labor in order to increase ROI.

    This is NOT a new concept.

    Decades before anyone ever heard the term N95, I was buying them at Home Depot for about $1 each in a box of 20.

    Every time I put a fresh one on, it burned my eyes. Thankfully, I only had to wear them during sanding, or any other dusty/toxic work.

    I couldn't imagine wearing one for 12 hours straight.

    Like most here on the Right, he never even read the link he cited.

    Then he asks questions that are all addressed in said link.

    Because he's targeting other under educated fools who will comment without reading links.

    We rain on his parade every time he posts.

    Yup, if you are in healthcare for the money, you should GET OUT!

    Disagree. There's nothing wrong with going into nursing because it pays well.

    It's the investors who get into the sector for the huge returns that are the problem.

    And the reason so many are fleeing the industry.
