Nurses 'excited, staunch' about strike

From Morning Report, 8:11 am on 12 July 2018

New Zealand nurses have walked off the job in their first strike in decades for better pay and conditions. Picket lines are outside the main hospitals. In Auckland, nurse Gui Restall tells Guyon Espiner about why they're striking. Christchurch nurse Jacqui Bennett tells Gyles Beckford nurses have been under-funded for too long. Outside Wellington hospital Katrina Hopkinson says they're hoping for more funding to make the job safer.
