Right now, our nursing homes are in crisis—and the workers and residents are suffering.
The pandemic laid bare the problems in this industry. Nursing home workers and residents lost their lives due to these issues—issues like low staffing, unsafe working conditions, and an exodus from the industry due to low wages.
When we don’t take care of our nursing home workers, they can’t take care of our loved ones. And when we push their limits with short-staffed facilities and low pay, they are forced out of the industry, leaving our seniors behind.
In order to save our seniors, we must protect our nursing home workers. We must enact policies that will hold these facilities accountable and ensure the safety of their workers and residents.
Join our fight and tell California leadership: Save our seniors and put care first!
