Frontline care workers won’t be left behind again

Workers protesting for $15 with a megaphone.

Frontline workers have provided care for communities throughout the pandemic, all the while making poverty wages, struggling to get PPE, and often denied sick pay. It’s unfair and exhausting.

Home care workers, nursing home workers, and fast-food workers all stepped up to face impossible challenges. Notably, the pandemic laid bare the ways in which the care system is broken.

Long term care workers – predominantly Black, brown, and AAPI women – won’t be left behind again. It’s time for Congress to show up for ALL workers and put them on the path to true recovery – one that includes quality care and good jobs.
