From the late, great Placebo Journal (RIP)
Pictures Say Thousands of Words
Above are two advertisements. We understand that the second one is NJ and the first is NY but here is what a NY doctor shared with me:
I get called every day to volunteer on behalf of Gov Cuomo and every day I ask if I’ll be paid to risk my life because nurses get paid. Every day they respond with “Sorry, it’s a volunteer position”.
You may ask why they are offering so much for NPs and PAs. We don’t know. Our best guess is that they have doctors locked into employment contracts, which they are breaking, or they are using our Hippocratic guilt to get us to volunteer.
It just may be time for a physician revolution.
