“Funding, unionization needed to improve wages, working conditions in long-term care: report,” by Kimberly Bonvissuto, McKnight’s Senior Living
“Expanding public funding, increasing the minimum wage and unionizing workers are the first steps toward improving wages and working conditions in the residential long-term care industry, according to the authors of a new report. ‘The state of the residential long-term care industry,’ from Washington, DC-based think tank Economic Policy Institute, covers employment trends in the industry and suggests interventions to try to ensure that long-term care services are accessible, affordable, safe and enriching for those who need them.”
LTC Comment, Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform:
Public financing and government control dominate long-term care now. Instead of recommending more of the same, shouldn’t we first ask why the system is such a mess already? That is the more promising analytical approach in Medicaid_and_Long-Term_Care (2020) and How to Fix Long-Term Care Financing (2017).
