Nurses Still Lead Honesty and Ethics List

For the 20th straight year, nurses lead Gallup's annual ranking of professions for having high honesty and ethics, eclipsing medical doctors in second place by 14 points -- 81% vs. 67%. Grade-school teachers (64%), pharmacists (63%) and military officers (61%) round out the top five most revered professions in this year's list, with more than six in 10 Americans viewing each as highly ethical.

Health Care Workers Deserve More Than Applause

Health Care Workers Deserve More Than Applause

For nearly two years, OPEIU health care professionals have been on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic. Enduring long hours and mandatory overtime — often without extra compensation — they’ve put their physical and mental health on the line to provide the best patient care possible.

They’ve rightly been called heroes, yet still most of these brave essential workers have not received the compensation for their service they deserve. Instead, they’ve been short-staffed, overworked and underpaid.

Through many surges leaving hospitals at their breaking points, health care workers have been risking their lives and the lives of their families to provide quality, compassionate care to their patients. Most of them have not received compensation for their service and sacrifice.

A majority of Americans say they would join a union, with 77 percent of those 18–34 voicing their approval for unions. Many are choosing OPEIU.

Gallup polling released in September shows Americans’ approval of labor unions is at its highest point since 1965, with 68 percent reporting a favorable view of organized labor. The survey, conducted in mid-August, also showed a staggering 77 percent of those age 18–34 have a favorable opinion, echoing the findings of surveys conducted earlier this year by Pew suggesting most Americans, especially younger ones, would vote to join a union if given the opportunity.

Many are choosing to organize with OPEIU, looking to improve their working conditions, give voice to marginalized workers and address issues of diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
