Thousands Gather in Downtown Los Angeles to Protest Drastic Cuts to State's Homecare Program
Date:5/22/2009

i>to nearly $700 million in Federal funds that will be left on the table."

The IHSS program delivers quality care to those in need while saving California taxpayers millions of dollars annually as the program is approximately eight times less expensive than institutional care. Additionally, the program draws down Federal funding that covers a majority of program costs.

"Cutting the IHSS program doesn't help California's financial problems, it only makes things worse," stated Rob Robbins, a Los Angeles County Homecare Provider. "These cuts not only place hundreds of thousands of lives at risk, they're fiscally irresponsible and work against the goal of solving our state's budget problems."

Today's rally is the first of many events to take place over the next several weeks to raise awareness of these dangerous cuts and their impact on our most vulnerable residents and those who care for them.

SEIU Local 6434 represent over 174,000 homecare and nursing home workers throughout California.
