They’re protesting changes the company has made to their health plans.</p><p>The workers include nursing assistants, housekeepers and admitting staff. They say Providence raised their health plan deductibles in January, meaning they have to pay more out of pocket before their insurance kicks in.</p> Tue, 12 Mar 2013 00:04:21 +0000 Ashley Gross 7946 at http://www.kplu.org
