Karen Lorini: “Go union” at Eskaton Village

Having known Larry King for the past four years, I have the utmost respect and admiration for him.

I was very impressed with his comments and concerns regarding the Eskaton employees efforts to establish a connection with the SEIU.

I have owned and lived in a home here at Eskaton for over 10 years. I am very familiar with corporate Eskaton’s continuing use of dissembling and mendacity. I completely empathize with the frustration expressed by Larry as well as the employees who are only seeking fairness in asking for a small raise in their hourly wage.

It is way past time for corporate Eskaton to stop their greedy bullying and intimidation toward the people about whom they profess to care. “Transforming the Aging Experience” indeed: employees who are overworked, underpaid and understaffed. People who are working very hard to keep Eskaton the special place it is and the reason most of us moved here in the first place.

Many of my fellow homeowners join me in encouraging employees to go union!
