#bFair2DirectCare Statement on ‘bupkis” Budget Allocations for Direct Care Workers

The #bFair2DirectCare Coalition has issued a Statement on the Governor’s failure to include New funding for Direct Care Workers in the Executive Budget.


#bFair2DirectCare could not have been clearer in what’s needed in this year’s budget to help direct care workers achieve a living wage – the very kind of economic justice Governor Cuomo has championed for other working New Yorkers — $45 million.

What Governor Cuomo proposed can simply described as ‘bupkis.’ It’s an old Yiddish phrase gently translated as ‘nothing.’”
