SEIU United Long Term Care Workers (ULTCW) and Members of Community to Hold Vigil on Potential Wage Cuts to Santa Cruz County Home Care Providers

Group Also Opposed to Unnecessary Deportation Caused by “Secure Communities” Program

Los Angeles, CA - SEIU United Long Term Care Workers (ULTCW) is hosting a community vigil to protest potential wage cuts to In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) home care providers by the Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors. The Board of Supervisors is considering reducing the wages for home care workers who participate in the IHSS program from $11.50 to $10.35.

The protest will also call on California to stop supporting the federal “Secure Communities” Program. The program, meant to provide fingerprints to the Federal Government to help fight crimes, doesn’t work as it was intended. Instead of fighting crime, its identification tactics have resulted in too many illegal immigrants being deported.

Please join SEIU ULTCW and others members of the community for a vigil to protest potential wage cuts and the “Secure Communities” Program:
