Nursing Home Workers Picket To Increase Wages For Quality Resident Care

A group of nursing home workers is fighting for higher wages to accommodate the care they say they are giving residents. Workers say some of them are nearly making minimum wage, while still trying to increase the quality of their care giving. The group decided to picket in protest after working to reach an agreement with nursing home administrators and failing.

"We want better wages, competitive wages," said a nursing assistant at the nursing home. "A lot of girls here are working for almost minimum wage. For as much care as we do we want to give the quality care to our residents which we do but we would love to be treated just as equally with the pay."
