Today, we are joining NY Caring Majority, NYAIL, 1199, RaiseUp NY and other groups from across the state to demand that Governor Hochul not hold thousands of low wage workers’ wages hostage as she tries to demand cuts to home care and CDPA.
If we don’t stop her, the Governor will scrap the law that mandates home care workers are paid $3 above the minimum wage – just one year after she pledged to pay home care workers more to tackle the home care crisis. Home care work is essential work, and #CDPAisEssential. The Governor must uphold her promise.
Also check out a list of talking points you can share with your elected officials. Ask them to speak up and use these talking points in conference with their colleagues. It’s not too late! CDPA.Legislator budget talking points – 4_18
