IHSS providers and clients speak out against the Freedom Foundation

June 13, 2018

We are standing together to protect the IHSS program for our clients

An out-of-state group called the Freedom Foundation is telling California home care providers to drop our union. They say they care about workers, but really they are funded by billionaires, oppose raising wages, and want to take away our benefits.

IHSS providers and clients are speaking out against them and their goal to weaken our collective power and our union.
