The home care workforce has become one of the fastest growing in the nation, but in-home care workers haven't had access to basic workplace protections. Until now.
This afternoon, the Department of Labor finalized long-awaited regulations to end the exclusion of home care workers from minimum wage and overtime protections.
This is an enormous victory, but our work is not done. To achieve the full potential of this change, our next step is to thank the administration and pledge to work closely with them on the fair and timely implementation of these new protections.
