Submit Your Comments to the Department of Labor - Support Giving Home Care Workers Minimum Wage and Overtime;
Respond to Consumer Voice By February 27 at Noon ET
Currently about 1.7 million home care workers are not eligible to receive minimum wage and overtime protections. The Department of Labor has proposed a rule that would give home care workers these basic protections.
Increasing wages for home care workers is an important step toward improving the quality of the job. Improving the quality of the job makes workers' lives better, increases job satisfaction, reduces stress and improves morale - which means better care for consumers.
The Consumer Voice supports this rule and will submit a sign-on letter to the Department of Labor - but we also need as many individuals as possible to comment on why they support this important proposed rule!
