Make Your Nominations for “Scrooge of the Year”

Our allies at Massachusetts Jobs With Justice are taking nominations for their annual "Scrooge of the Year" competition, an effort to shine a light on those policymakers, institutions or corporations that have undermined the interests of working people in our state and the nation. OK, nurses, who do you nominate? An example might be Cerberus/Steward Health Care, headed by CEO Ralph de la Torre. This giant Wall Street private equity firm, which has gobbled up hospitals in Massachusetts, has refused to provide a pension plan promised to its nurses, has fired nurses without cause, has cut back on the most basic supplies for patients and is now threatening to close services and hospitals, despite promises to the Attorney General to maintain those services.
