Casey bill would raise pay for long term care workers

U.S. Sen. Bob Casey (D-Pa.) introduced legislation, along with Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) and Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wisc.), to improve compensation and benefits and support systems for caregivers. The Long-Term Care Workforce Support Act would improve pay for direct care professionals, and put into place strategies to increase the number of care professionals, to reduce the current shortage.
