Los Angeles County Officials Propose Raising In-Home Care Workers’ Hourly Pay
On Wednesday, two Los Angeles County supervisors proposed raising in-home care workers' pay from the current $9.65 per hour to $11 per hour starting Feb. 1, 2016. The proposal -- which came the day after in-home care workers rallied to have their pay raised to $15 per hour -- would not include such workers in a proposed pay raise for county workers and private-sector employees in unincorporated areas being considered by the board.
