Supervisors chop us home care workers with phony budget axe
homecare24page7.jpg
Fresno county supervisors disrespectfully, unilaterally set our pay at $7.50/hourly with no union contract even though we voted 90% to join SEIU local 250. We had sought $10.50/hourly plus medical insurance. We had offered to compromise at $8.65 plus medical and $9.50 next year. Stockton just agreed to $8.50 plus medical and a training program. Hear what we told the supervisors:

See facts on how county could afford to pay us:

Supervisor Bob Waterson whined that he had been threatened "thuglike" by a caller who said he would raise $20,000 to get Bob out of office. The real thuggery in this case is by the board of supervisors who have
refused to give us home care workers a just contract.
