Today's Talk: Missouri home care workers fight for higher wages
JEFFERSON CITY - Missouri home care workers fought for higher wages Wednesday afternoon at a rally at the state capitol.
Those at the rally urged Missouri lawmakers to approve a raise proposed by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. The proposal would give consumers the power to set the wage for their attendants within a range of $8.50 to $10.15 per hour.
The current average wage is about $8.60 per hour.
