  2. I think that the people who deserve a raise, have gotten one already, by
    mistake! As some of the hardest working individuals in our many hospitals,
    I think that the VA Nurses who recently were discovered to have gotten a
    raise-by-mistake, should not have to repay the monies which that mistaken
    raise brought to them. If you could talk to any one of them, male or female, he or she would say that the raise made them feel as though they were more appreciated, and could feel more proud of the occupation which
    they chose. Many of us once thought that mursing was a romantic job,
    but in reality, it is one of the most unnerving, under-appreciated, and,
    to be blunt, nastiest jobs that one can choose as a career. As A retired
    classroom teacher, we also deal with some of the most cantankerous, rude,
    callous parents on Earth. And that is not to mention dealing with some of
    the most disheartening, cruel, nasty, beliggerent, teasing children that
    God has allowed on this Earth. If we did not have a majority of “good
    kids” every year of teaching, there would also be a multitudinous shortage
    of teachers. Someone encourage those nurses to file a class action suit
    to retain the raises which they received and deserve. The next time around,
    those in power will more diligent at their jobs. These nurses also, at present, are dealing with the most catatrophically awful wounds to our soldiers that have ever been received, physically and emotionally, in war.
