    nurses have such an easy job...

      Please don't put words in my mouth, that's unbelievably obnoxious. Nurses don't have easy jobs. Neither do cops or firefighters. The difference is that they tend to be more appropriately compensated and treated with some modicum of respect, and (with nurses) their hours are an understood part of their contract--they trade a 12-hr day for a shorter work week. I have had nurses close to me my whole life. WalMart workers have no such respect or leverage.
