SEIU deals Governor's wage cuts for home care workers one more legal blow

OAKLAND, Calif., July 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- California home care recipients, care providers and their union, SEIU, are hailing another legal victory in their campaign to prevent the Schwarzenegger Administration from cutting In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) wages.

She enjoined the State from implementing the state budget law requiring the reduction.
