    between their first amendment rights or having a contract, which is just as bad.
     They are being denied the most fundamental intent of the 1st amendment to allow people to associate together to fight for better policies.
     Keep in mind that this isn't about free speech at work, but about free speech outside of work.  Also keep in mind that nurses are the eyes, ears and hands that do the majority of patient care.  If they can't have an honest voice about what they observe, how can we improve patient outcomes and the health care system as a whole. I'm glad these nurses are organized and standing up to protect all of us.
