Gov. Brown: Keep your promise #Overtime4Caregivers

Rally for home care overtime in OaklandDemanding equality for all workers, legislators, clergy, seniors and community groups joined caregivers at multiple rallies across the state on Feb. 11, escalating pressure on Gov. Jerry Brown to keep his promise to treat all workers equally under the law and allow In-Home Supportive Services providers to earn overtime pay after a 40-hours work week.

Events were held in Sacramento, Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Ana, Bakersfield, Santa Barbara, San Bernardino and Oakland, highlighting the critical work that in-home workers provide to the elderly and people with disabilities.

We will continue to fight to get overtime pay for our home care workers. Home care providers often work around the clock to take care of their clients and deserve the same rights as other workers.

Sign the petition now to win overtime for our home care workers:

“Our work is not visible, but it’s absolutely vital to the well-being of our clients. It’s demoralizing that the governor is sending us the message that we don’t deserve the same treatment as others. The fact is California can’t move forward when we are leaving 400,000 workers behind.”
— Virginia Duran, Home Care Provider in San Jose
