Nurses' Ebola Protest Draws Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders

Ebola has become a major issue in contract negotiations for nurses in California. Nurses in Oakland are locked in negotiations with Kaiser Permanente, where the nurses are seeking to include Ebola protections among the issues in their next contract. The nurses marched to Kaiser headquarters, with support from socialist senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont. They’re calling for more equipment and training for nurses who may be called on to treat Ebola patients. Christopher Martinez reports from Oakland.
