The Seattle Times | August 21, 2022

“It’s not always the easiest path from ‘I am interested in this work’ to becoming a caregiver and making it through this training process,” said Lynn Kimball, the executive director of Aging & Long Term Care of Eastern Washington. “If someone else is hiring and the wage is comparable, people often look at the closest, easiest path because that is the economic reality for us all.”

But caregivers have a constant bleeding heart, Rice said, even if that means taking a job that pays less than working at a fast-food restaurant. Still, she’s known more than a handful of people who moved to larger towns or cities where the pay is better or jobs are closer.

“I tell people every day, when you are a caregiver you know you are making a difference in somebody’s life. Without you that person wouldn’t have the food they need, they wouldn’t have your friendship or companionship,” she said. “But prepare to live in a battleground where you know you are a making a difference because there aren’t enough caregivers.”

August 31, 2020 update: We have exciting news for Addus Washington caregivers. Our bargaining team has been working to reach an agreement with Addus about extending Hazard Pay – and thanks to workers raising their voices, we have made it happen!

Hazard pay: Addus APs will now get a $2.71 increase to your base wages for all hours worked in July, August, and September. You’ll also receive an additional $3 an hour of targeted hazard pay if taking care of a COVID-19 test-positive client.

PPE: You will continue to be provided with all the necessary PPE for caring for all your clients. You can ask your supervisor for PPE – contact us if you haven’t received PPE upon request.

You can read the latest MOU here.


Through impact bargaining, Addus caregivers have won:  

  1. Hazard Pay: Addus APs will receive an additional $3.15 an hour for every hour worked in May and June. We are all on the front lines, so all ADDUS APs will receive this pay, regardless if you are caring for a client with COVID-19. And you’ll get an additional $3 targeted-hazard pay per hour for taking care of COVID-19 test-positive clients. 
  2. More PPE: Addus has committed to spending additional funds to provide PPE and supplies intended to protect workers, including one-time-use N-95 masks, gowns, and gloves for caring for test-positive clients. 
  3. Healthcare and Training: Addus is increasing their hourly contribution rate to the Training Partnership and Health Benefits Trust for all hours worked in May and June, so no one loses healthcare coverage. 

See the full MOU here.

Despite the State facing a growing budget deficit as a result of the pandemic, Governor Inslee agreed to increase funding for home care agencies like Addus in order to provide this immediate support to caregivers. This was all made possible because of caregivers like you sending letters, signing petitions, sharing your stories, and so much more to demand the Legislature prioritize caregivers to receive Federal stimulus money.  

Standing together got us to this point – we need to keep this up to make sure that caregivers are treated as the essential professionals they are.
