Sen. Schumer joins 1199SEIU home care workers and advocates to rally for passage of Better Care Better Jobs Act

On Tuesday, October 12, Senator Chuck Schumer joined home care members and advocates in our Manhattan headquarters to urge Congress to pass President Biden’s Better Care Better Jobs Act. The act would provide $400 billion to expand homecare and community-based organizations, creating more jobs for homecare workers and allow more people to remain in their homes and receive the vital care they need.


Homecare members were also in Washington, D.C. the week prior to take part in a 24-hour national story-telling vigil.
