Home care workers do hard, essential, compassionate work, yet we struggle to pay our rent and put food on the table.
The demand for home care is exploding but the system doesn’t work for anyone. Families can’t afford to get the care they need and workers can’t afford to provide it.
That’s why home care workers and home care consumers are coming together to fight for a living wage of $15 an hour, the right to form a union without retaliation, and a home care system that works for everyone.
Home care workers in states like Massachusetts, Minnesota, and Washington organized and won higher wages and benefits. Now it’s time to make home care jobs good jobs across the country.
We’re joining courageous fast food workers, who started the Fight for $15 when they called on McDonald’s and the fast food industry to end poverty wages and give all workers the respect we deserve.
We are fighting for $15 an hour so we can take care of ourselves and our families, and continue giving the best possible care to our communities.
