Community Connect Action Alert - Contact members of the Appropriations Committee Re Waitlist and Workforce Bills
From Kim Humphrey:
#ActionAlert Call your legislators and if you are in districts with members of the Appropriations Committee please call them to fully fund LD 1573, the long term care workforce commission bill. Urge them to raise the rates for direct care workers to 125% of minimum wage.
Appropriations and Financial Affairs (AFA) Committee Members
David Cowing took a video (linked at this FaceBook post) of Debbie Riordan Dionne, Lisa Wesel and me after the LD1573 press conference last week. We are sharing that 1,700 people signed the petition to #raisetherates for direct care workers. We gave the petition to legislators on Monday. Now is the time to follow-up with Appropriations committee members and your local legislators to move this legislation to a successful conclusion! Thank you to all of you who have taken action and will take action!
