Thanksgiving is a perfect time to reflect on the invaluable contributions that direct-care workers make to help elders and people with disabilities — and their families and other loved ones — all year round.
But the 4 million direct-care workers in this country deserve more than thanks. They deserve to be paid a fair wage for their essential — and often dangerous — work.
PHI continues to advocate for quality jobs for this workforce to ensure quality care for everyone who needs the services and supports they provide.
Happy Thanksgiving from the staff at PHI!
