CA Union Nurses make $88k...are going on Strike?

California registered nurses make $88,714 a year on average, excluding benefits, up 20 percent from a decade ago, after adjusting for inflation, according to the California Employment Development Department. That's more than double the inflation-adjusted 8 percent increase in average wages for all Californians during the same period.

Sutter officials said that their Bay Area RNs earn up to $136,000, plus employer-paid benefits and pensions.
