Tony Glad is the same guy that had the Island Medical Center closed down a couple of years ago and made some remarks that were addressed by the Philippine General Counsel.

“I am writing to express concern over your remarks during an interview with KSPN on 14 March 2008, during which you were heard to say, in connection with the recent departure of the Filipino accountant of Island Medical Center, that 'It is typical of the Filipinos...when they have problems...they [dis]appear and leave for some reasons,'" Maximo said in his March 19, letter to Glad.

I thought that the purpose of PL 16-208 was to be able to hire nurse graduates from NMC without experience, but it seems that all the posting require at least two years for both foreign and local applicants. This posting reports that they are not covered by the FLSA however according to the FLSA fact sheet ALL nursed whether registered or lpn's are covered under the FLSA unless they are RN's in an administrative role and are paid not less than $455 per week.
