Stanford has been and continues to be a bad neighbor to Menlo Park and now they are a pretty bad employer, not surprised. They are greedy to the extreme and with the amounts of money they are accruing and the way they treat everyone, their non-profit status should really be questioned.

What a slap in the face to the dedicated nurses who have given their all to their patients and the hospital for the past almost 3 years. Shame on you Stanford Hospital Management! Cutting your nurses' pay for striking????!!!! Disgusting!
