Home Care workers cancel protest

The protest scheduled for 8:00 a.m. Tuesday at 70 W. Hedding St. in San Jose – where hundreds were expected – will be turned into a celebratory rally.

WHEN: Tuesday, February 25 at 8:00 AM
WHERE: Santa Clara County Government Center, 70 West Hedding Street, San Jose CA 95110

With an aging population and a growing need, home care workers are crucial to the future well-being of our community. However, Santa Clara County pays our home care workers an average yearly income of $11,500, or 65% below a living wage income.

Home care workers should not be forced to live at or below the federal poverty line. While the County of Santa Clara has given other employees cost-of-living adjustments, they refuse to pay home care workers a living wage.
