Foster Parents in the State of Washington Move Toward Unionizing

Foster parents in the state of Washington have been working quietly for the past few months to join the Washington Federal of Sate Employees and make Washington the first state in the country where foster parents will be part of a union. Presently, about 6,000 foster parents care for approximately 9,600 children. The pay range for foster parents ranges from $374 to $525 per month, depending on the child's age. Foster parents receive  no health insurance or holidays and are on call round-the-clock. Source.
