NAPE Wants Immediate Wage Hike for Home Care Workers

May 25, 2007

NAPE president Carol Furlong says the provincial government's failure to include a wage increase for home care workers in last month's budget needs to be addressed. She's calling for an immediate increase in the hourly wage. Furlong says while the provincial government is enjoying a previously unknown level of prosperity, home care workers are still working for poverty wages. She says they are an integral part of the health care system, and the services they provide ease the burden on hospitals and nursing homes, saving government millions of dollars. Furlong says most home care workers are women and it's an unfortunate fact that some female-dominated professions are still underpaid.

Cheers to you today Ms. Furlong. Please continue in the coming days to push this issue. I already know of two home care workers in my area who have quit since the budget was released.

not sure what's happening..haven't been watching the TV. I am sure they will have some answer soon...

I just sent an E-Mail to CBC suggesting they scrap the current results and start again due to voting irregularities. This time with higher level of security in place.

To funny you guys are still trying,

Wayne I live in the greatest country in the world bar none, that is why everyone wants to come here as opposed to ever ask yourself why is Canada the second largest country in the world and has only 33 to 34 million people...I can tell you why Canada has nothing to offer.
