It’s hard to believe, but that was the headline of a recent USA Today story which, to me, was shocking.  They are under so much stress right now with the number of COVID-19 cases and staffing at the bare minimum, I would have thought that they would be extremely unhappy.  But 75% of them say that they still love their jobs, according to a USA TODAY/Ipsos Poll of doctors, nurses, paramedics, therapists and others in the health care industry.  “The pandemic has actually made me realize how important this career is, and how I really do make a difference,” Christina Rosa, a 33-year-old mental health counselor told USA Today, despite the fact that she had to close her office and serve clients remotely.  About half of the poll respondents described themselves as burned out and 20% said they were feeling angry.
