Direct care workers deserve more

Editor, OBSERVER:

I think that it’s unfair for fast food workers to make more money than direct care workers. Direct care workers care for our disabled population and our most vulnerable people.

It’s not fair that Gov. Cuomo is not putting out dollars for this year’s budget to help direct care workers get a better living wage. When direct care workers are not receiving the pay that they can live off of, it hurts our disabled people because they are not able to keep their staff from finding other jobs to pay their bills and so forth.

Everyone needs to be aware of our disabled people!
