This Halloween PCAs want to let the neighborhood know that it’s scary how the State of Connecticut tricks and treats home care services! Home care workers, also known as personal care attendants (PCAs), are paid poverty wages by the state to care for some of Connecticut’s most vulnerable citizens so they can live independently at home. The majority of Connecticut’s 10,000 independent home care workers are Black, Brown, and White working women making poverty level wages with no benefits for health insurance, paid time off, or retirement.
Thursday, October 28 at 4:30 PM, home care workers spoke in front of the Governor’s Mansion to share some Horror Stories from Home Care Workers. Then the group spread out to do some trick-or-treating to share these horror stories with the neighbors.
