Coronavirus is deadly and dangerous and I am happy for the people who have escaped and are escaping with their lives intact. I worked as a nurse in Alberta during the 2004 CA-MRSA outbreak. It is scary for medical professionals and for patients to be in an outbreak. I was registered with college of licensed practical nurses of Alberta and when I ‘retired’ from nursing I was earning $19 and few cents per hour. This did make me feel bad all the time during my career. What am I putting myself into at this low pay? I am practicaly doing the same job as a registered nurse and my pay was half. I couldn’t possibly have quality life, except when I worked many double shifts or tripple shifts, to earn the proper pay, and I must say that on the double shift at $28 and few cents I certainly felt better emotionally. Along the low pay and nursing workload I choose to live on good feelings, feeling worthy and offering good practice and moral support and positivity, feeding my bank account and heart with feeling of good merit. While other people with ‘bullshit jobs’ were earing upwards of $5000/month. From that and my disability I learned to stay away from front line work.
