Hundreds of doctors in Quebec, Canada are asking the Ministry of Health to cancel a proposed pay raise it wants to give them, imploring the government to instead redirect the funds to other healthcare workers and patient care in the province.
A sprout of organic socialism–cool. Right on docs.
Kudos to those doctors!
Can’t upset the existing medical system health scam, keep all involved happy and paid well. All doctors have to be millionaires? Dentists too?What other job pays so much to practice pushing chemical drugs or the Vegamatic chopper on anyone who breathes.
Very impressive indeed.
It is ridiculous what dentists charge.
Thoughtful response by doctors … for the benefit of patients, themselves and the system of care there.
What civilized looks like.
Too many US physicians are not much more than drug pushers (I know this experientially) and this arrests their imagination as to solutions for patients who cannot tolerate drugs. Money corrupts everything.
An excellent post I might add, so thanks.
Consider organizing for Improved Medicare For All if you don’t already.
Sign up for the free conferences.
This is a beautiful selfless act by the doctors of Quebec.
Rather than simplistically blame - ONLY - the dastardly pharmaceutical and insurance industries It would be truly inspiring to see PNHP take a similar mensch-like tact.
In our distant past, we had Henry Ford decide to pay his workers fair wages. Today, we have Warren Buffet endorsing progressive taxation and Nick Hanauer dissing the deceit of supply side economics.
The exceptional leadership exhibited by Artie T. of Market Basket rather than enjoying widespread recognition by democratic politicians has been lost in the memory hole. Unfortunately though, most pro-worker discussion is pretty much kept on the down low. I have 1000 TV channels and (like our political parties) not one is pro-labor
We need some heroes to speak truth to power.
I Love Canada!
