H.R. 3582 The Fair Home Health Care Act: An Analysis

H.R. 3582 offers Congress an historic opportunity to send three important economic and
social signals:
1. Homecare workers should be on an equal footing with respect to all other low‐wage
2. Within long‐term care, the homecare labor market should not have second‐class status
with respect to compensation and, therefore, with respect to its ability to attract and
retain workers.
3. Federal lawmakers can work together to coordinate, rather than send conflicting
messages about, the direction of our nation’s long‐term care policy.
