SEIU Local 2015 members who provide home care across San Benito County
Scores of SEIU Local 2015 members will gather outside the San Benito Board of Supervisors Office advocating for “Time For $20”—California caregivers’ demand that a path to $20 an hour be established as the long-term care industry wage floor.
Media interview opportunities are available on-site with SEIU Local 2015 members.
Our communities’ essential frontline caregivers ensure that our most vulnerable receive the care and dignity they deserve, in the safety of their own homes. And yet, home care workers struggle to survive on low wages and absence of healthcare. 20% say they are likely to leave the industry, as the demand for home care rises. SEIU 2015 members have been in negotiations with San Benito County since April, with no significant movement on wages or healthcare coverage.
