Nurses on strike for 7 months; HBCU president on diminished federal funding
Hundreds of nurses at Saint Vincent Hospital in Worcester, Massachusetts, walked off the job on March 8, 2021, and have been on strike ever since. Marie Ritacco, one of the nurses on strike, and Vicki Good, a nurse and past president of the American Association of Critical-care Nurses, join us. And, cuts to Biden's spending package diminished the earmarked funding for historically Black colleges and universities. Kevin Cosby, president of Simmons College of Kentucky, explains why more federal funding is critical for institutions like his.
