These are the people who help take care of my brother Stephen. Please support the Direct Care Workers. Come out to the Rally on March 11th. If you cannot come out to the rally to increase the salaries of Direct Care Professions please call, write, or email Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Thank you. Unfortunately because of my work schedule I cannot be at the Rally. Those of you who have been following over a period of time know that it has been next to impossible for me to get time off work for Stephen or to extend my Autism Activism/Advocacy. More or less I’m doing my Autism Advocacy with my hands tied behind my back.
Somebody please tell me why people like my brother Stephen do not have value in this country? Why aren’t the Direct Care Workers paid a living wage? I’m afraid. I’m afraid for Stephen. If the Direct Care Workers are not there then who will care for him? How will I hold down a full-time job and take care of my brother also? It is very difficult to be happy when you don’t know what the future holds for yourself or your developmentally disabled Loved one.
