Letter to the editor: WA Cares Program Should Be Improved

“I’m a long-term care worker in College Place and have cared for multiple clients over the last 18 years. I agree the WA Cares program should be improved by making it possible for folks who live out-of-state to exempt themselves and by allowing people who are near retirement to qualify for partial benefits. About 70% […]

2022 年立法议程

2022 年优先事项 长期护理 Time for $20(争取 20 美元最低时薪) 保护并改善 WA Cares 增加对于居家 Medicaid 客户的 Personal Needs Allowance(个人需求津贴) 种族和经济正义 移民失业保险 扩大针对移民的医疗服务 可负担的住房和租房权利 公共安全、警察问责制和减少监禁 允许 Dental Therapists(牙科治疗师)在华盛顿州执业以增加获得口腔保健的机会 实施 Working Families Tax Credit(工薪家庭税收扣抵制) SEIU 775 主席 Sterling Harders 寄语 长期护理 向长期护理工作者至少支付 20 美元的时薪 Time for $20(争取 20 美元最低时薪)是我们发起的一项运动,旨在为华盛顿州的长期护理人员赢得每小时 20 美元或更多的固定工资,包括家庭护理、Nursing home(疗养院)和养老院护理人员。 在疫情期间,医疗保健、食品服务等领域的必要行业工作者工作在第一线,但许多人的工资依然无法维持生计。这场疫情并没有造成长期护理的危机,而是揭示了现实情况:没有足够的护理人员,没有足够的设备,没有足够的资金。 如果不对一线工作人员进行投资,那么随着人口持续老龄化和对护理人员需求的增长,华盛顿州将面临日益严重的劳动力短缺问题。 将长期工资提高至每小时至少 20 美元,将使护理人员能够养活自己和家人,并招募到更多我们需要的训练有素的员工。 必要行业工作者理应获得足够生活所需的薪资。点击此处,详细了解 Time […]
