Disability support workers hit by pay and holiday cuts

Denmark Denmark
The FOA has joined with disability campaigning organisations to challenge the government and municipalities on cuts to the pay and conditions of workers providing support to people with disabilities. Some workers directly employed by the people they care for are losing out on night and weekend allowances while seeing their maternity leave cut and losing their sixth week of paid leave.
