Unhappy with worker wages at PeaceHealth

As a Whatcom taxpayer, I think there is something seriously amiss when the biggest employer in the county offers a health-benefits plan that the lower tiers of employees cannot afford. I expect this of Walmart, but not of a health provider enjoying a government-allowed monopoly in Northwest Washington. I am used to the sad fact that Walmart forces employees into public assistance programs, but something is really wrong when PeaceHealth does the same.
