Caregivers Applaud House Budget

Home care workers across the state applaud House Democrats for continuing to support fully funding the home care union contract with a retirement benefit. Unlike the Senate, the House proposal does not make a modest retirement benefit contingent on restricting bargaining rights and ensuring that caregivers can never have an adequate retirement.

House Democrats are also doing the right thing for working families by standing up for a capital gains tax, an important step towards ensuring that the wealthy pay their fair share to support public services and improving the most regressive tax system in our country.

We urge the House to restore funding for private home care agencies to ensure that they can continue to provide quality care for vulnerable seniors and people with disabilities in our community.
