May 25, 2023: Homecare Worker Protest
Audio from an April 2023 rally in New York City with homecare workers and their supporters protesting 24-hour shifts paid for only 13 hours, sometimes for days in a row. City Council (now majority women and minority) promised to end this abuse and didn’t.
Workers are also getting screwed on a promised wage increase by the state. Speakers in various languages, with translation, include workers, organizers, feminists, former officials, and a tech worker with a similar problem.
WINGS thanks the show Building Bridges from WBAI radio in New York for their excellent audio of the rally.
