Fair Pay For Homecare
The Senate and the Assembly took the unprecedented step of including a fully funded Fair Pay for Home Care proposal in each of their budget proposals. This would mean $5 billion more every year for home care services across the state and would guarantee that PAs make a decent wage - a wage that reflects their importance and impact on our community. After a decade of willful neglect and cuts under the previous administration, this investment is needed more than ever!
What You Can Do
Call Governor Hochul
Take a moment to call Governor Hochul at 518-474-8390. Press "3", then "2" in order to speak to a live person.
From there, it is a simple message: "Governor Hochul, bonuses for home care are not enough. Please join the Senate and the Assembly and support Fair Pay for Home Care so we can end our worst in the nation home care crisis and make sure home care and CDPA are a real option for the disabled and older New Yorkers who need it."
Call every day. The Governor must hear from New Yorkers about how important this is. And she must hear about it constantly.
