It’s a day that we recognize the valuable contributions personal support workers (PSWs) make to our healthcare system. SEIU Healthcare has worked with the Ontario Government to achieve important victories for PSWs including:
• increasing the minimum wage for homecare workers to $16.50 an hour
• working with the provincial government to create a PSW registry
• adding three million additional hours of homecare for PSWs
And now, our current Rise for Homecare campaign asks all Ontarians to consider their current and future homecare needs and PSW support and to take action by rising for homecare.
