Low, and sometimes late, payments results in both families struggling to afford their basics and in staffing shortages, which leads to greater unmet care needs across the state and compounds the care crisis. It’s time to ensure that home care workers have liveable wages for the regions they provide care, payment for the miles they travel between their clients, and full, timely compensation. By doing this, we can recruit and retain more workers for a fully staffed home care system to meet the needs for Colorado’s future.

We are asking for your help to call on lawmakers to secure ALL of these rights:

1

Guaranteed Liveable Wages
The right to liveable wages and travel compensation for all time worked; paid on time, every time.

2

Protection from Bad Bosses
Strengthened enforcement of labor laws to ensure home care workers’ rights are protected and employers who commit wage theft or other violations are held accountable.

3

A Workplace Free From Harm
The right to a clear and safe reporting system for home care workers who experience sexual harassment, assault, or discrimination on the job.

4

Guaranteed Minimum Benefits
The right to a minimum number of vacation days, paid holidays off, and affordable health insurance for all home care workers.

5

Decision-Making Power
All of these rights depend on workers and their clients having the fundamental right to unite as leaders in care with the power to make decisions in how their industry is run.
