This is really powerful. Early in my career I was in private practice. In 1995 my practice became a cog in a big healthcare system's wheel. The financial discrepancies in healthcare are appalling not only physician salaries amongst specialties but especially between management and frontline workers. A clinic I worked in offered healthcare benefits but a majority of the nursing and maintenance staff were uninsured because they couldn't afford it. Healthcare is a right not a privilege and the system is really broken. I think the pandemic has revealed these glaring discrepancies but I'm not sure anything is going to be done to fix them

It's heinous when health care workers can't even afford health care. It's unforgivable that we still can't get this right, especially when it's so obvious to the rest of the developed world.
