BNB1: By The Numbers

Nurses and frontline workers at 30 HCA hospitals across America held their eighth week of consecutive protests against the hospital giant today, citing poverty wages, unsafe working conditions, and disrespect in their workplaces. Tens of thousands of frontline HCA nurses and hospital workers are paid less than $15 an hour in the pandemic, with wages as low as $12.50 an hour - more than 1,000 times less than the salary of CEO Sam Hazen. HCA made $3.75 billion in profits in the last year of pandemic. CEO Sam Hazen recently got more than a $3 million pay raise bringing his salary to $30.3 million.
