Eureka, CA – For county homecare workers like Garberville’s Margaret Lewis, it’s been a long road, rife with struggle and sleepless nights. But today, thanks to the efforts of homecare workers like Margaret, Humboldt County’s homecare community has reason to smile. Early this afternoon the county announced its approval of an agreement with the union that represents over 1,400 county homecare workers. The agreement includes a wage increase for the lowest paid homecare workers in California and marks significant progress towards the conclusion of a difficult contract campaign.
