Hundreds of Healthcare Workers at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital Strike Over Safety Concerns and Benefits (Aired: July 22, 2020)

Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital Workers are on strike for the week to demand a safer workplace. They say Providence St. Joseph Health, which owns the hospital, is proposing to cut their health care benefits and sick leave. They also say the hospital is not providing adequate personal protective equipment in the midst of the pandemic. KRCB’s Adia White reports from the picket line.
