Mental health professionals at Kaiser Permanente began a 5-day strike yesterday (Monday), calling for more staffing and shorter wait times. KVCR's Benjamin Purper reports.
Outside the Kaiser building in Fontana, mental health professionals are chanting and holding signs that say “Kaiser, Don’t Deny My Patients Mental Health Care.”
It’s the first day of a five-day long strike. Over 4,000 mental health workers across California are demanding Kaiser increase their staffing to provide shorter wait times for clients.
