Health Care & The Caring Economy
The United States is the richest country in world history, yet many families struggle to afford health care, child care, and elder care. Your health, safe care for your children during the work-day, and dignified care for our elders, shouldn't be privileges for the wealthy – they should be rights.
That's why Michigan People's Campaign is fighting for a new social compact where care for families is guaranteed. We're for defending and expanding the Affordable Care Act, and working towards universal, single-payer health care. We're fighting to expand access to affordable, quality child care, so parents, especially women, can fully participate in society and the economy. We're advocating for universal long-term care, so that the costs of aging don't bankrupt our seniors or their children. We also are fighting to ensure that care workers earn a living wage and are treated with dignity.
