In Seattle, Washington, thousands of nurses and caregivers at the Swedish-Providence Medical Center are launching a three-day strike today to demand fair wages, adequate staffing and better conditions for patients. It’s part of a statewide strike against corporate giant Providence Health & Services, which healthcare workers say prioritizes profits over patient care. With up to 13,000 workers poised to walk off the job this week, union leaders say it could be the largest healthcare strike in recent history.
