About 75,000 health care workers launched a planned three-day strike at Kaiser Permanente facilities across the United States on Wednesday, the largest-ever such action in the healthccare sector. Those walking off the job include nurses, medical technicians, and other support staff at hundreds of hospitals in California, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. Kaiser said hospitals and emergency departments would remain open, staffed by doctors, managers, and "contingency workers." Kaiser nationwide employs 68,000 nurses and 213,000 technicians, clerical workers, and administrative staff, alongside its 24,000 doctors.
