#06-23 Homecare Worker Protest  … Working 24 hours but only paid for 13 is slavery

Audio from an April 2023 rally in New York City with homecare workers and their supporters protesting 24-hour shifts paid for only 13 hours, sometimes for days in a row. City Council (now majority women and minority) promised to end this abuse and didn’t. Workers are also getting screwed on a promised wage increase by the state. Speakers in various languages, with translation, include workers, organizers, feminists, former officials, and a tech worker with a similar problem.  

WINGS thanks the show Building Bridges from WBAI radio in New York for their excellent audio of the rally.
