I looked up this story, because I wanted to see the specifics for myself.<quoted text>
Sorry. I am unable to locate the source which stated that they were paid at the same rate as health workers. In any case they are being reimbursed on a schedule which was NEGOTIATED by SEIU and receive more than they would have if the union had not looked out for them.
Nevertheless, these are people who want to be PAID to care for their own children and then gripe about paying some evil union for getting them more money. Must the be same kind of thoughtful, grateful people who protest to keep the government out of their Medicare.
As far as I could tell, from Googling "Robert Haynes SEIU", the ONLY place this story appears is in conservative blogs.
I couldn't find a single, mainstream news outlet (Fox included) that had any coverage of this story.
Can anyone provide a link to an actual news story on this?
