Support those who support seniors

Support those who support seniors

When COVID-19 hit, provinces of Ontario, BC and Quebec, responded by giving raises of over $4 an hour to all staff at seniors’ homes.

On April 20, Alberta Health Minister Tyler Shandro promised $2 an hour to just one classification of worker (Health Care Aides).

That money has still not arrived. The government claims it delivered the money the week of May 5th, but to date, workers have not seen a dime.

It took other provinces about two weeks to put in place a province wide wage grid.

But Alberta is still fumbling.

It’s shameful treatment of front line heroes.

Send a letter to your MLA asking that Health Care Aides and other long term care staff be treated better.
