WWAARC speaks out in media on NYS wage issues and the impact on our field

Thank YOU
Assemblyman Jim Tedisco for standing up
for the disabilities' community again!

Governor Cuomo is forcing private business owners to pay $15 an hour to fast food workers while our state and federal govt who funds people who care for people with disabilities only provides enough money to pay them $10-$11 an hour! What happened to getting paid a commensurate wage for the job that is performed?

Talk 1300 AM with Melody Burns February 15, 2016 Peter Guidarelli (Government Relations) and Jennifer McCullough (PR and Development) had the pleasure to chat with Melody about the human service industry and the lack of funding in our Medicaid Budgets to support the $15/hour minimum wage rate. We ask - don't the people who care for others' lives ever day deserve more?
