Main topic of conversation is the 18-day residents and interns strike at Cook County Hospital, Chicago, October-November 1975. At the time it was the longest doctors’ strike in U.S. history.
Topics include: Patient care, benefits and wages, and working conditions.
The distinction is made between a "strike" and what the doctors call a "job action".
