  • Ok so the cost of living now is out of proportion I remember living a lot better in the 80’s I could actually afford to be middle class and raise my daughter on 15.00 an hour plus Ins benefits were included

    Since then I’ve had to reinvent myself I’m 60 years old and had a hard time getting back into

    Ok so the cost of living now is out of proportion I remember living a lot better in the 80’s I could actually afford to be middle class and raise my daughter on 15.00 an hour plus Ins benefits were included

    Since then I’ve had to reinvent myself I’m 60 years old and had a hard time getting back into the work force online I almost exhausted my savings trying to raise my daughter and be a caregiver to my sick parents

    I am a professional cardgiver and I have to pay for my own medical( like most people) the most a disabled person can pay averages 10-15 an hour I pay taxes and health ins not much is left after that😒

    Why doesn’t the insurance pay for a cardgiver? Most elderly want to live at home especially if they have lived there most of their life close to their Church, stores , Friend s , memories, ect,,, that’s a better quality of life but on a fixed income and the increasing cost of living the elderly either struggle at home or are forced to move into a nursing home or some other facility that cost anywhere from $5,000.00 or more a month without individual care SHAME on the system!!!

    So a burger flipper with/ without much of an education can make 12.00 an hour while a caregiver who is responsible for people’s lives and quality of care are not able to make 15.00 an hour

    House Democrats please review this scenario, how would you like to be in that position if you were on a fixed income???
