About 25 years ago, I had the terrible problem of representing the only organized hospital in the City of Chicago—the only organized hospital. At that time, the workers were paid the magnificent salary of $1.15 an hour, averaging almost 30 cents more per hour than other hospital workers. Justifiably, the administration of the hospital felt that they were so far out in front on the salary issue that the negotiations became quite difficult. So, we chose to organize, and did so by focusing on a couple of hospitals.
