Home Care Sees Large Wage Decline

Banner reading home care workers for $15

It’s not your imagination — home care wages are falling behind.

Wages have been dropping farther and faster while the bills keep going up. Home care workers like Jasmin Almodovar love their jobs, but Jasmin hasn’t had a raise since 2007, and that means her paychecks aren’t keeping up with the times.

The numbers don’t lie…

 

Real wages for home care workers fell 6.2% from 2009 to 2014

This is why home care workers across the nation will be standing up at rallies on Tuesday. Stand with everyone fighting for $15 and join an event near you!

Those numbers don’t just tell Jasmin’s story. They tell the story of everyone struggling to get by on less than $15 — the ones who are hardest hit as paychecks don’t go as far as they used to. Like striking fast food workers and everyone struggling to make ends meet, home care workers work hard. We don’t deserve to see our paychecks getting smaller and smaller — we deserve $15!

After you sign up to join a rally, share the image with your family and friends to show them why you’re fighting!
