Require that agencies obey the law by paying DC homecare workers all owed wages and by providing seven paid sick days each year.
This petition made change with 718 supporters!
Thousands of DC homecare workers worked for months in 2013 and 2014 without being paid by their agencies and have faced other forms of persistent wage theft. As a result, many faced eviction, loss of possessions and family disruption. And even though these workers care for the city's most vulnerable residents, almost all of them are denied legally mandated sick days to take care of themselves. Please support the right of DC homecare workers to get owed wages and benefits and a speedy process to form a union so this never happens again. Please sign this petition and follow our campaign at WECAREFORDC.org and on Facebook and Twitter. We are homecare workers and our lives--and the lives of our clients--matter.
