Overtime Limits for In-Home Care Workers Left Out of California Budget Deal
A budget deal developed by state lawmakers will reject overtime limits for in-home care workers. Gov. Jerry Brown's (D) budget plan limited overtime hours for such workers, arguing that federal rules set to take effect in January 2015 would increase home-care costs by more than $600 million by June 2016. However, critics of Brown's proposal say limiting overtime payments for in-home care workers would significantly affect their income and would hurt their customers.
