Santa Cruz, CA - On Tuesday, December 7, 2010, SEIU ULTCW home care providers, community allies, and Santa Cruz Mayor Mike Rotkin will gather outside the Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors at 8:00 am to picket and protest potential cuts to in-home caregiver wages. Protesters will later file into the Boardroom to testify during public comment about the need to protect this vital program by protecting worker wages.

The protest comes on the heals of the Santa Cruz City Council passing a resolution on November 23rd that honors the hard work that in-home caregivers do, and as the Santa Cruz Living Wage Ordinance celebrates its 10th anniversary.

Currently, Santa Cruz County in-home caregivers earn $11.50 per hour, which is $2.10 below the Living Wage Ordinance of $13.60.
