    I have been working at State of California Office of Statewide Health Planning part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are many needy clients and they are able to stay in their homes because of this service; it saves the State of California a lot of money in opposition to the client being placed in a nursing facility.

    Cons

    The Homecare workers are not paid nearly enough for the work they do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I can't really address anything direct to management, the salary that is set between Union and the City is always bargained for. There is lots of work that needs to be done in this area.
