    Striking Nurses lost their shelter

     

    This story is presently happening in MBMM hospital hostel in Kerala state in India. (Kerala is known as God's own country for its tourism importance)

     

    The nurses of MBMM hospital started strike against management to get their minimum wages for work and bring down the exploitation against them. The average salary of an MBMM hospital nurse is 50-75 Euro per month with which a person can’t even buy the daily bread. The hospital is under a charitable trust and is charging heavily from patients for treatment.
    The strike started on 24th April 2012 and still going on under the banner of Indian Nurses Association.
    After the strike started the hospital management took revenge on the striking nurses. They physically abused them and they destroyed the women hostel to a state where no one can live. The management closed the staff canteen and pushed the striking nurses for starving. It is a very pathetic situation that they regard the angels from God as slaves.

     

    It is hard to believe, that in this 21st century, after 65 years of freedom, India is still under the slavery of political and economical bureaucrats.

     

    None of the media in that state reported the news. Around 150 nurses are suffering now without a shelter because of this arrogance of management.
