This Saturday, home care workers and allies nationwide are participating in a Care Canvass ahead of critical November elections. The Care Canvass will be taking place in over a dozen cities across the country! Together, we will engage voters around the need for a stable long-term care system. Everyone should have access to the services they need to live independently at home with dignity, and no one should be paid poverty wages or denied decent benefits to do this vital work.
On Saturday in Chicago, we will take our message to communities on the south side, encouraging voters to support an increase to the minimum wage that will raise wages for all Illinois workers, including those working in home care, and the need to elect lawmakers that stand with home care workers and consumers.
