• Taking care of our caretakers

    “[Home care workers] are professionals, doing heroic, demanding and increasingly skilled work. The services they provide allow us to remain in our homes, in our communities, while still receiving critical care. 

    So they deserve our respect, our admiration and our gratitude. But more important, they deserve to be treated fairly, with all of the rights and protections in the workplace that Americans have come to expect. That includes the right to have a voice in the workplace and the right to bargain collectively.” – Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan and U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez
