It’s a tale of two budgets in Olympia: Republicans in the state Senate have proposed a budget that does not include funding for our contractual pay raises and slashes funding for our health benefits. Democrats in the state House include full funding for our health benefits and our contract with agency parity in their budget.
Clients need the stability of fully funded services and caregivers need this step toward a sustainable living wage. Your voice can make a difference in making sure the final budget includes full funding for our contract with agency parity.
Our calls and emails make a difference and I hope you will join us in helping to ensure a more secure future for yourselves and your clients.
