Minnesota home care workers march and rally outside the State Capitol this afternoon (1pm), part of a national day of action supporting President Biden’s 400-billion-dollar plan which backers say will improve access and give workers the chance to join a union.  LaTanya Hughes, a home care worker and V-P at Service Employees International Union (SEIU), says there’s a shortage of workers because of low wages:

“They can go work at McDonald’s or Taco Bell for 14 dollars….  There’s no incentive to being a PCA (personal care attendant).  There’s no advancement to being a PCA.  The benefits are slim-to-none.”

Activists are calling on Congress to pass the president’s plan.
