Testimony and Briefs

The direct service health care sector is in CRISIS.  Across the country there is a serious problem in the shortage of home health workers (and other direct support professionals) who provide hands on services to senior and people with developmental and intellectual disabilities and in the District the problem is more acute.  There is a shortage of workers and the pay is so low that dog walkers, delivery drivers and Amazon warehouse workers make more.
