Direct support staff in group homes, home care attendants, and nursing home caregivers are the soul of long-term care. They deserve living wages, affordable healthcare, and the dignity of a pension after decades of service to the elderly and individuals with disabilities.
Join us in our demand to “Pay long-term care workers what they deserve!” Let’s create a Pathway to $25 minimum wage hourly for long-term care workers, with access to quality healthcare and retirement benefits.
