Michigan Democratic Party Statement on Joe Biden’s Caregiving Workforce Plan

The Michigan Democratic Party released the following statement on behalf of Chair Lavora Barnes on Joe Biden’s plan to create 3 million jobs through critical investments in the caregiving workforce:

“I’m thrilled to see Joe Biden expanding his Build Back Better plan with these critical investments in our caregiving workforce that will create over 3 million jobs and build an economy that helps working families. Biden’s commitment to making caregiving more accessible and affordable stands in stark contrast to Donald Trump, who has failed to bring progress on paid family leave, cheaper child care, or support for elder care. Trump has worked tirelessly to slash Medicaid funding and threatened long term care for seniors, rolled back paid sick leave provisions for medical workers during a pandemic, and threatened to strip federal funding from Michigan schools. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spiral out of control due to Trump’s failures, we need a president committed to these programs now more than ever. I know that Joe Biden will be that president.”
