Tell lawmakers to fully fund caregiving
This legislative session lawmakers need to hear from caregivers. We have fought together to win real improvements to our wages and benefits, but even with our progress, too many long-term care workers continue to struggle with low wages and inadequate benefits – and that’s not right. The caregiving workforce is overwhelmingly women and disproportionally Black women, Indigenous women, women of color, and Immigrants. We deserve to be treated, and compensated, like the healthcare professionals we are, and to have caregiving be a good career in Washington.

That’s why we’re asking the lawmakers to:

  • Fully fund the Home Care Rate to raise wages and expand benefits to include health insurance for dependent children
  • Fully fund skilled nursing facilities with accountability to increase wages for low wage workers

Send an email to your legislators today asking them to fully fund the Home Care Rate with benefits and skilled nursing facilities. 

Optional: Add in your own personal story that will be included with the email. If you do not want to add anything in addition to the already written email, you can leave the field blank.
