is about care workers who work in hospitals article I know it sounds crazy, but I can’t help but feel like I’m talking about people who are literally at the center of a hospital system.
The care workers I work with all have the same story.
They were given a choice between a life of working in a facility that was a cesspool of neglect, and a life that included the freedom to earn a living with the promise of a steady paycheck.
The only difference is that one day they were told their work was being turned into a profit for their employer, and the next day they are told they are owed compensation for the time they put into a hospital environment.
And I’m not just talking about the kind of “job” that requires you to spend hours cleaning, but also the kind that requires the nurses and staff to do tasks that you wouldn’t even want to be involved in in the first place.
I can tell you this: I’ve been a care worker myself.
It is my dream to have my work recognized as my own, to work in a hospital, and not be expected to perform dirty work that can lead to my death or even permanent disability.
That is the reality facing many care workers and their families.
I have witnessed how many of these workers have lost jobs because of their work and how their families have been left with nowhere to turn.
I am not going to let this happen to them.
I’m going to take it on.
If I have to choose between my family and the care I provide, I’m giving them everything I have.
And to the people of Colorado, thank you for your support.
