DIRECT CARE WORKERS NEED YOUR SUPPORT

      –Inadequate wages have created a critical staffing shortage     

     –Wages are lower than almost all other industries

     –This has only worsened during the COVID-19 pandemic         

     –The $2/hour pandemic increase is set to expire in February
   

How can you help? Contact your state representatives -ask them to make the wage increase permanent.

 

SAMPLE ADVOCACY LETTER Direct Care Professionals are essential for thousands of people who rely on them for daily care. While they do not operate in hospital settings, they care for high-risk individuals in group homes or other community settings. They cannot work remotely and cannot stay home.  I am asking for relief from the State of Michigan to deal with the very real impacts coronavirus is having on this industry and in compromising the ability to provide care. Without these steps and relief, this critical sector of our healthcare system is in severe jeopardy.  Thank you for your consideration. Sincerely, (Your Name)
