Direct Support Workers Need to be Recognized by the Department of Labor

Congress has a pair of bills that would add Direct Support Professionals to list of professions tracked and reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This would allow for states and other stakeholders accurately examine changes such as wages, number of employees, medium age of the workers, etc. for this profession. This would be an important advancement for this profession.
