    I’m not sure about your summary of proposal 4. It would *require* any home healthcare worker who receives money from the state (through the Home Help Program) to pay dues to the SEIU, even if they elect not to join the SEIU. I have a hard time supporting that. On the other hand, I support training requirements, background checks, etc. This is a tough one.

      Thanks for your input Megan. I also don’t know about my summary of proposal 4 🙂

      It’s a tough one, we agree, and I am undecided on this one currently. But is this not how unions fund operations in fields where unions are present in non right-to-work states, by requiring dues even from non-members? In part because even non-members get the benefit of any collective bargaining. I also think it’s important to support the right for groups to organize and negotiate to protect their rights. And I agree with you 100% that training, strict licensing, and accreditation, would be a positive thing for those receiving home care.

    Glad you referred to those neighbors to the North as friendly ones! 😉 Nice summarization, Bri.

      Thanks Shan!

      You’re the only Canadian I know so that generalization is based on you.
