Caregivers are the backbone of our community…

It’s Time for $20

Caregivers need your help. 

Across California, long-term care providers have been on the frontlines of the pandemic. They’re working long hours, caring for our loved ones. They worked heroically with little or no PPE at the beginning of the pandemic, fighting to save lives, comfort patients and families, and do their best to stop the spread of COVID-19.

And we aren’t treating them like the essential workers they are.

There’s a crisis in our communities and nursing homes—a shortage of caregivers that’s only getting worse. Read more…

This wage increase will help caregivers—mostly women of color—care for themselves and their families without fighting to keep a roof over their heads and food on their table. 

Will you join us? Sign the petition and call on California leadership to set a $20 living wage floor now!
