Seventy food service and physical therapy employees at state hospitals in Maryland are fighting for their jobs after being targeted by Maryland governor Larry Hogan, reports their union, AFSCME 3. The workers did a round of visits to state lawmakers last week to ask them to "find $3M out of $40B+ budget not to fire 70 cooks and physical therapy aides that serve Maryland's most vulnerable patients," the union said. The cooks and aides works at the state's Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH). A Lobby Night on the issue scheduled for Monday has been rescheduled for February 8.
