“As my uncle’s provider, I work 55 hours per week. Before overtime pay, my family lived paycheck to paycheck and often used payday loans to keep up on our bills. Now we have less stress and more financial security.” —Roy Pridemore, Orange County

 

“Ending the 7% cut means that I can afford my daughter Sha’Quonna’s medication, food for her special diet, and utility bill payments. The cut forced our family to choose which of these things were most important, when in reality, they all are.” — Latrese Lofton, Riverside County

“When my son’s hours were cut it hurt us. I struggled to buy gas for my car to take him to doctor appointments in San Francisco. That’s why I joined with UDW providers last year to lobby for the 7% restoration to IHSS hours. We finally ended a cut that was hurting my family.” — Kim Spoeneman, Stanislaus County

“I work day and night providing care for my son Marshall who lives with autism. Now that I’m receiving overtime pay, I can afford to take Marshall to group sessions and therapy that will help him develop his social skills. Before it was way too expensive. I’m happy that now I can help my son even more.” — Percie Slate, San Diego County

 

“I can’t think of another job where employees are told they need 100 hours per month to complete their work, but don’t get paid for 7% of them. With the hours restored I can breathe a little easier and do things others take for granted like buy fresh fruit and vegetables for my client.” — Sharon Duchessi, Placer County
