We represent nearly 3,000 workers at San Mateo Home Care.
“San Mateo County has this opportunity, to pass a living wage, to help lift families out of poverty.” – Genee Fonseca, In-Home Supportive Services Provider
Important note: The overtime and travel time pay changes will be postponed from January 1, 2015 until further notice. This is due to a decision made by the U.S. District Court in Washington D.C. on Dec. 31, 2014. This means that you will be paid the same regular pay rate. Our union and other advocacy organizations are working together to fight back on this issue. We will keep you informed regarding any updates on this matter.
