Join us LIVE Jan. 28, 2014 at 1:30 PM as we talk to lawmakers in Sacramento

livestream1Governor Brown announced earlier this month that he intends to limit provider hours to 40 per week in an effort to dodge a new federal rule that gives caregivers overtime pay like all American workers. The Brown budget also continues a 7% cut to IHSS hours, even though the state has a $6.3 billion surplus.

UDW caregivers responded immediately: the very next day, we were there to speak out against the budget proposal when Governor Brown came to San Diego. Caregivers in Riverside and Kern did the same later that week. Homecare provider Rosita Whittaker, together with her daughter, invited CBS LA into their home to detail the devastating impact Brown’s cuts would have on their lives.

In Sacramento, caregivers from across the state came together to educate lawmakers and the community about how limiting caregiver hours will hurt our families.

This Tuesday, January 28th, we will be back in Sacramento to speak out against Brown’s budget proposal, and to highlight our goals for homecare and IHSS in 2014. Caregivers will be meeting one-on-one with lawmakers to educate them about the vital work that we do, and to urge them to restore homecare by eliminating the 7% cut to client hours.

Join us live at 1:30 pm PST on January 28th via livestream at for an info session led by UDW caregivers and our Executive Director Doug Moore.

Let’s join together to tell Governor Brown NO MORE CUTS TO IHSS and no limits on provider hours!
