The Californian - Salinas

The registered nurses of Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital voted overwhelmingly Wednesday night to put off a pay raise for two years, a spokeswoman said.

RN Jeanne Hiyashi, speaking on behalf of the nurses organization, said the group voted 256 to 23 to defer the scheduled wage increase in an effort help ease the burden on the financially struggling public hospital.
