"Even if they paid me for every hour, I wouldn't work 24-hour shifts anymore. It cost me my health and my family."
Those are the words of a Home Care Attendant that like so many have worked 24-hour shifts for years and not gotten paid for more than 13 hours. And these actions are sanctioned by our government. Why?
Most Home Care Attendants are women, women of color, and immigrants too. As Senator Myrie points out in this video, "it would not happen if it was another population doing the work." These women have been forced to do this work; in essence, have been made slaves.
Please stand with these workers and call your State Senators and your Assemblyman and tell them to vote to ban 24-hour shifts.
