A $25 per hour minimum wage for healthcare workers will help address the patient care crisis
Burned out and traumatized from the pandemic, healthcare workers are leaving their profession in alarming numbers, leaving our cities with a looming patient care crisis. The Healthcare Worker Minimum Wage Ordinance set a $25 per hour minimum wage to help address the crisis by retaining current workers, attracting new ones, and making sure we invest in frontline healthcare workers.
Wealthy CEOs are trying to take it away
Corporate healthcare executives call their employees “heroes” but are trying to take away fair wages for the healthcare workers on the front lines of the pandemic. Healthcare corporations have made billions in profits, and their executives are paid millions but have no plan to address the staffing crisis plaguing Los Angeles healthcare facilities.
Don’t sign their deceptive petition
The CEOs are using deceptive language to convince voters to put their referendum on the ballot. If they succeed, the Healthcare Worker Minimum Wage would be repealed, cutting wages for the lowest paid healthcare workers.
If asked, do not sign their petition. Let your friends and family know not to sign. Let’s support healthcare workers.
