Fair Pay for Home Care
Home healthcare workers provide care that allows “seniors and people with disabilities to live independently and with dignity in their own homes. New York is facing an extreme shortage of home care workers, and there is a critical need to hire more workers now and over the next decade to meet the overwhelming demand.
The high turnover and difficulty attracting new home care workers is driven by low wages and unstable work. Home care workers are joining together through their union, 1199SEIU, to fight for fair pay for home care.
