Missouri home care workers reach historic wage agreement

After eleven months of bargaining, home care attendants in Missouri’s consumer-directed services program reached a tentative agreement Friday on a contract that would raise hourly pay for thousands of workers.  The 8,000 to 9,000 home care attendants in the program currently earn an average of $8.58 an hour. Once implemented, the new contract will lift the hourly wage of most to $10.15.
