The 5% Campaign Rally

The 5% Campaign held its first rally of the year in support of a 5% increase in funding for Primary Care Attendants and those who care for seniors in their homes. Last year, the 5% Campaign created a coalition that was able to secure a wage increase for the hard-working men and women who take care of some of Minnesota’s most vulnerable citizens. This funding increase has helped many of these people continue in their profession, but their wages remain low, and job turnover is high. The 5% Campaign is working toward another wage increase to ensure continued high-quality care for every citizen of Minnesota, and legislation was introduced this week to secure this funding.
