I don't understand why Central Maine Healthcare needs to cut its staff when its top management makes much more than its lower-tier workers. How is the CEO so indispensable that he needs to be compensated $1.9 million?
I would think the most indispensable people would be those who give direct patient care, instead of "talking suits" who pose for the newspapers with Patrick Dempsey.
It's a shame that CMMC employees didn't agree to form a union years ago, when some of the previous staff tried to form one. I feel sorry for any worker who will lose a position and any patient who will lose the services of people in those positions.
Upper management will still have their well-paid jobs, but the little guys will be in the unemployment line, wondering how they are going to keep their houses and feed their families.
Where is the fairness in that?
