During union negotiations last year, we asked for a small number of bedside RNs to be in committee on workplace violence (after an RN was actually beaten up by pt. & hospitalized) although almost no cost to administration- they declined so no voice from those ACTUALLY experiencing.

Anyone else struggling with jealousy after being laid off? I feel sad and angry when I think about the people who can stay just because their group has a union and / or they work there over 10, some even 20 years. I really loved working at this agency. My bad luck was that our group lost our only client. I really wish I could stay! 😢
Good Seattle neighborhoods? School is in South Lake Union but a great view of the sound (Belltown? Lower Queen Anne?) would be ideal. Is this a bad idea? Would have a car

Fellow ACN 🐠: Completely forgot my Amex payment and it went past 30 days. Received a mean automated email reminding me to pay on time. Will I get fired? Will it hurt me at promotion time?
With the Chase Reserve increase are people looking to change cards? Amex platinum seems to give better benefits for same price so looking at that one
Any F 🐠 want an excuse to not work at all for at least the next three weeks? Pretty sure I’m sick 🤒
These questions might have been asked before. How difficult is it to transition to MBB from Big 4, how different is the work culture? Are there significant hikes in compensation? And workload?
I got a really bad migraine earlier this week. I felt bad to say I was sick while “WFH”. But that shouldn’t be the case. Has this happen to anyone during quarantine?
