Katrina Refugees Used as Scabs in SFUnbelievable!
About a dozen evacuees from Hurricane Katrina are filling in for striking workers at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, hospital officials said Saturday.Not only is Bush trying to use Katrina to repeal wage standards in the Gulf Coast, they seem to be placing the refugees in scab jobs to undercut union wages in other cities.
The workers -- among them janitorial staff and nursing assistants from the storm-ravaged gulf -- are employed by a temporary employment agency, CPMC Medical Director Allan Pont said.
