Equal pay for Home Care Workers in Ontario as workers in Long-Term Care.

Pay Seniors' Home Care Health workers the same pay that Long-Term Care workers get.
See this Toronto Star column -

Why is this important?

From this article in the Toronto Star on July 31st 2020 - "We know that home care workers in Ontario are already paid considerably less than those in long-term care. This situation must be corrected, not made worse. To stabilize the entire health system, home care workers must be paid at parity with those in long-term care. Workers in both sectors deserve a raise for the critical support they provide to our seniors.
Ontario’s seniors are relying on the government to protect them. Safe, reliable, and compassionate home care from well-trained and well-paid staff is key to improving overall care for seniors."
