This would solve quite a few problems that never seem to go away.

The union that represents home-care workers in Newfoundland and Labrador has asked the province to take full control of the troubled industry and negotiate one collective agreement for all home-care workers.

The Newfoundland Association of Public Employees (NAPE), which represents 1,700 home-care workers, issued 10 recommendations to the province Thursday to improve wages and working conditions.

A quote from Nape President Carol Furlong seems to sum it all up pretty well.

"If government continues to ineffectively deal with this problem it is not because of economics, it is because of a lack of desire and a failure to recognize the needs of people who built this province."
