The Message

In New Brunswick, wages do not reflect the value of care.

The over 12,000 care workers who provide care and services to the elderly, people living with disabilities, children and women fleeing violence, are overworked, undervalued and underpaid.

This sector was in crisis long before the pandemic, but it’s only gotten worse.

In spite of their high responsibilities, skills, effort and difficult working conditions, they earn between $15.72 and $20 per hour. To reach pay equity, wages should range between $24.99 and $28.86 per hour, depending on the service.

Things have to change! I am asking you to correct this injustice, and to support public investments to achieve pay equity across the community caregiving sector.

Can I count on your support?
