Better Pay and Benefits Needed

Caregivers are fleeing nursing employment for staffing agency. Better pay and benefits. The industry needs to do better.

The Biden administration should get credit for the booming economy. Real GDP in the U.S. exceeds that of the other G-7 countries. Household cash exceeds debt for the first time in 30 years. Inflation is going down. New housing starts, a key economic indicator, are rising fast: they are up 9.7% from a year ago. We can pay a living wage with good benefits.

Unfortunately, the Republican tax plan will increase taxes on 75 million middle-class families by an average of almost $1,500 a year. Biden’s plan will not raise taxes on anyone who makes less than $400,000 a year.
