Fair Wages for Healthcare Workers
Burned out and traumatized from the pandemic, healthcare workers are leaving their profession in alarming numbers. Low pay and poor working conditions mean that not enough new workers are willing to join the healthcare workforce, leaving our state with an urgent patient care crisis.
The Healthcare Worker Minimum Wage initiative will set a $25 per hour minimum wage for all healthcare workers in the city of San Diego to help retain existing workers, attract new workers to the field and make sure we are investing in frontline healthcare workers.
End Excessive CEO Pay
At the same time that healthcare workers are struggling with low pay and poor working conditions, many top executives at healthcare corporations are being paid extravagant amounts of money — up to millions of dollars a year.
Healthcare company profits should be invested into caregivers and improving patient care, not into inflated executive pay packages.
It’s time to limit healthcare executive compensation to a reasonable amount.
