Filipino nurses helped pay for the meals of 300 picketing nurses Wednesday outside North Memorial Health Hospital in Robbinsdale, Minnesota, according to operators of a Filipino food truck.

The 300 picketers were among 15,000 nurses in Minnesota-St.Paul and Duluth who went on strike over wage increases and staffing issues.
