FLSA facts no. 2: Growing home care industry can afford basic labor protections for workers

Source: Paraprofessional Healthcare Institute (PHI), April 2015

From the abstract:
Explains a lawsuit filed by the home care industry that has temporarily stalled the implementation of a federal rule change extending minimum wage and overtime protections to home care workers. The fact sheet shows that the highly profitable, rapidly growing home care industry can afford those basic labor protections. It also argues that investing in the home care workforce is a necessary step in building an adequate home care workforce.
