Colorado Home Care Workers Bill of Rights
Across our state, home care workers, predominantly women, many women of color and immigrants, provide skilled compassionate care that allows seniors and Coloradans with disabilities to live with dignity. But many care workers in our communities are so underpaid that they struggle to keep a roof over their families’ heads.
Low pay, unsafe working conditions, and a lack of a voice in their industry are driving workers away in record-high numbers, creating a dire care worker shortage. At the same time, Colorado’s aging population, and the demand for care, is growing rapidly.
The way forward is clear: Care workers must have the power to come together to discuss their issues and have a voice in the solutions their industry needs to ensure accessible quality care for all Coloradans and quality jobs for those who provide it.
