Opinion: Home care workers need more than $9 an hour

By Ethel Ayo

As a home health care worker, I help my eight clients with Alzheimer’s and dementia with all kinds of daily living tasks, from walking and bathing to cooking and cleaning. I love my work because I truly care about my clients’ health and well being. It is absolutely critical that our seniors and people with disabilities deserve to have quality, professional home health care that allows them to live at home with independence and dignity.

In a long awaited ruling, the Supreme Court of the United States handed down a 6-3 decision in favor of the administration in King vs. Burwell, a challenge to the legality of subsidies for the poor in the federal health care exchange. I am not a legal scholar, so can’t comment on the legal nuances of the case. Nonetheless, there are big implications to the law standing that even I can understand.
