Home Care Workers Are the Mothers Lawmakers Ignore
I agree home-care persons need to be better taken care of. Trump and the hundreds of law writers were wrong in trying to exclude home-care workers.
I don’t really know why it matters what color home-care workers are, but since you brought it up I was curious and looked it up. Maybe in some areas they are primarily people of color, but generally not.

I worked at an assisted living home for a while. Learned a lot there. Most of the employees were immigrants from African countries, so I thought what you said would be right, but maybe our perceptions in our locales are not true across the country. I also do a little work in the medical field which would support your claim, but the details are confidential.
Either way from that interesting note, I’m supporting 100% that home-care workers need to be take care of too. It’s like you said – they’re forced to work sick or not get paid, meanwhile they’re on the front lines of everything – taking care of people so they don’t get sick… This whole thing is really making some hospitals a lot of money.
I understand the “Obamacare” was also written with hospitals and insurance companies in mind first and foremost. Understandably, they need sustainability, but transparency there and with the Trump administration is important.
