Andrea with her sister, Tonya YorkWhen President Obama extended minimum wage and overtime protections to the nation’s home care workers, surely he didn’t intend for many of these same workers and their clients to be plunged into poverty and pushed out of their homes.

New Federal rules will make home care providers eligible for overtime pay. However, due to the cost issues, the State Administration is against giving overtime pay for home care providers. To learn more details on the new rules and how it affects you and your client, come attend one of the general membership meetings to learn how to protect your hours and your client’s rights.
