D.C. hospital fires 11 nurses, 5 staffers for snowstorm absences

Read entire article here:

" "I see it as so unfair and uncaring," said Shirley Ricks, a 57-year-old nurse who has spent her entire career at the hospital. "That's it. You call in one day in the biggest snowstorm in history and you're out. No ifs, ands or buts about it. . . . You go from getting a salary every two weeks to nothing. It's scary.""
Note: Reminds me of the time my friend Thom had a heart attack and they tried to fire him from his new job in a Northern Virginia hospital. I don't know if it's legal to mention their name - although they were in a an area that had a lot of fair oaks around the hospital.
