WHO WE ARE
We are essential healthcare workers. When most Americans stayed home during the COVID-19 pandemic, before the vaccine, we risked everything and went to work to provide critical healthcare to those in need. We did this sometimes even without personal protective equipment. And most of us did it for only $15 an hour.
WHAT WILL YES ON MEASURE HC DO?
Measure HC will raise wages for essential healthcare workers to $25 an hour. Many healthcare workers are leaving their profession because they can't make ends meet in low wage positions. This has resulted in staff shortages during a time when we need more - not less - healthcare workers. Raising healthcare worker wages is not only fair, but it will help patients get the care they need.

FOR FAIR WAGES FOR INGLEWOOD'S HEALTHCARE WORKERS!
Hospital systems made huge profits over the last year despite the pandemic. Kaiser made over $6 billion, Hospital Corporation of America made $3.8 billion and Dignity Common Spirit Hospitals made $2 billion. They need to use some of this profit to fairly pay healthcare workers who made this possible.
Measure HC does not raise taxes, it simply requires hospitals to pay healthcare workers a fair wage.
