Seventy Massachusetts state representatives and senators have signed a letter to Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker in support of the state’s personal care attendants and funding for homecare services.

Hundreds of healthcare and homecare workers united for the annual 1199SEIU Advocacy Day to advocate for better wages and investments in healthcare services.
