More Than 13,000 Home Healthcare Workers, Clients Protest Governor's Cuts

Union Members Gather to Call, Write Letters to Schwarzenegger Expressing

Outrage

SAN FRANCISCO, June 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- An unprecedented number of home healthcare workers rallied Saturday to protest Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's proposed cuts to their hours of service, wages and benefits. These dramatic reductions would force some of California's most vulnerable workers and the people they serve deeper into poverty.

In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) provides personal care and domestic services to more than 408,000 seniors and disabled people, enabling them to live in their homes. The program is funded by federal, state and county governments.

In his most recent budget proposal, Schwarzenegger advocated "permanently eliminating domestic and related services" to 84,000 people, or 20 percent of all IHSS recipients.
