Fair pay for the overworked and over stressed

This petition had 574 supporters

Benefits Workers with The Department of Social Services in Portsmouth VA is severely understaffed and overworked. Our salary is way below the surrounding Cities. We do not have the capacity of Workers to properly complete every case timely and effectively. We do not have the tools nor proper training to maintain within the state guidelines. We struggle and stress to do our best while getting such a small wage. It's not fair to be paid pennies and handle such a large workload. Some of us can't realistically survive on such a small wage. Some of us are just one paycheck away from being on the other side of our desks or even homeless. We love our clients but we can not serve our citizens properly under these conditions.

It's time for a change, we are in desperate need of a change.
