GOOD FOR WORKERS
Gaining basic labor protections is an important step in establishing a wage floor from which the fight for a living wage can continue.

GOOD FOR WOMEN
This workforce is 90% women–many supporting families on what they earn. They benefit directly from the security that these labor protections bring.

GOOD FOR AMERICA
Improving home care jobs means it will be easier to recruit and retain good workers for the fastest growing workforce in the nation.

THANK YOU for your part in achieving this important victory! Let’s continue to work together to ensure America is prepared to care.
