One Year Later, Home Healthcare Workers Still Demand 48-Cent Raise from Rauner

Thursday, September 6, 2018

 

Chicago, IL – Forty eight cents is all home healthcare workers have asked from Bruce Rauner, but one year later, the failed governor still refuses to give them their hard-earned raise.

On September 6 of last year, Rauner was served a class-action lawsuit for failing to give workers the pay bump legislators passed in the state budget he vetoed. But Rauner has refused to budge, leading to workers taking to the streets to demand their raise and back pay just a few days ago.

“After failing to force his anti-worker agenda on our state through his budget crisis, Bruce Rauner has resorted to withholding a 48-cent raise to stick it to labor unions while working people pay the price,” said Pritzker campaign spokeswoman Jordan Abudayyeh. “This is a sad and desperate move from a failed governor looking for any political win.”
