Below is a video testimony given at the "The Revival: Time for a Moral Revolution of Values" Cleveland service on July 11, 2016, about the need for a living wage. A summary transcript of the video follows:
Many home health care workers do not earn a living wage for helping people they care for. The irony is that those making minimum wage can not cover the basic needs of food, clothes, shoes, school supplies, transportation, and fees for their own families. Working overtime means there is no one at home to take care of their families while they are caring for others. A living wage of 15 dollars an hour addresses the problem of allowing caregivers to provide care, meals, and run daily errands for those they care for in order to help them maintain an ongoing quality of life while providing for their own family's needs and support.
