Health care workers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are considering cutting their pay to match their colleagues at a new position where they are not required to have medical degrees.

The move, which could affect hundreds of millions of dollars in annual pay, could also impact the work of hundreds of thousands of people who have a high risk of catching the virus.

It could also affect the health of millions who are exposed to the virus at home, on the job and at the hospital.

It is also the first time the CDC has changed its stance on medical degrees since 2011, when it eliminated the requirement for all medical students to obtain medical degrees, effectively cutting the number of people with medical degrees at the CDC from a high of about 200,000 to about 25,000.

But the move has not been widely embraced by employees and some health care providers, who worry the cut will have a devastating impact on their careers.

The proposal has drawn strong criticism from members of Congress, who have urged the CDC to reconsider the move.

The CDC declined to comment for this story.

While the proposed changes would affect some of the people who work at the agency, the cuts could affect millions of others.

The proposed cut to pay is the latest move to take aim at the medical degree requirement for health care workers, which was part of a 2013 proposal to cut the number from 500,000 doctors to 300,000 and eliminate the requirement that all health care professionals have a bachelor’s degree.

The cuts to pay are part of an overall cut to salaries at the government agency that has seen its workforce shrink since the Great Recession and a recent recession.

In response, the CDC announced in November it was cutting its workforce by 10 percent.

It has been considering similar cuts since 2011.

The agency also plans to close about 1,300 medical training centers that it runs.

A recent report by the nonprofit Health Care for America Now (HCAN), which advocates for workers’ rights, found that in the first half of 2018, 3,000 people in the United States were laid off.

“In a time when we’re trying to deal with a severe recession, this cuts will have an impact on our ability to provide quality health care to those who need it,” said Laura Zeller, president of the National Nurses United union, which represents more than 1.6 million nurses.

“The impact will be devastating for the millions of Americans who are working with people who need our help and care every day.”

Zeller and others have also raised concerns about the impact of the cuts on the nation’s ability to respond to pandemic-related illness.

Zeller called the proposed cuts “a devastating blow” for the agency.

“There are people who do deserve a pay cut,” she said.

The cut would also affect about 5,000 nurses, medical assistants and health care technicians.

The hospital-based medical positions would be eliminated.

In addition to the cuts, the proposal would eliminate an additional $400 million in federal funding, or about 1 percent of the budget.

“These cuts would devastate the nation as we move toward a post-9/11 world,” Zeller said.

“We are going to lose hundreds of nurses and health providers who care for our most vulnerable populations.”

In addition, the cut would result in some people losing their jobs, including about 40,000 workers in the medical field, the union report found.

The union said it would take the proposal to the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee for a vote, which is expected to happen next week.

The plan comes as health care costs continue to rise.

The number of Americans with health care insurance has increased by more than 11 percent in the past year.

Health care spending has grown at a faster rate than wages, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

That has led to a dramatic increase in the number and size of hospitals, nursing homes, home health aides, day care centers and other health care provider jobs, and has led many workers to question the need for a doctorate.

While some health workers might be more qualified to serve patients than other workers, that could change with the new medical degree requirements.

The new medical degrees will be mandatory for health workers in most states, but they will not be required for most federal employees, including health care administrators, law enforcement officers, public safety officials, prosecutors, prison guards and public health officials.

The medical degree rules were introduced in 2007, when the health care industry was in its infancy and was still trying to establish itself in the public health arena.

In order to comply with the medical degrees requirements, health care companies must hire doctors and nurses.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has estimated that the cost of training a new physician and nurse to serve an entire population of patients at a facility will be about $1.5 million per year, including training materials, hospital and
