What should I do if you agree that I am a victim of a job discrimination?
I have a part time job with a company that provides a care for the elderly people in their homes. The only person I take care of is a lady who lives at my property. She has no relatives or friends in the US, she speaks no English. The soc. worker from Catholic Charities recommended us to organize a homemaker services for her where I may become the designated homemaker for her and get some compensation for the time we spend with that over 80 y.o. lady. I signed a contract with a company that provides home care services. I attended all the company meetings for homemakers, always followed company policies. The wages were always just above a minimum fed. wages, that is the only increase I would get. From the conversations on the company meetings I understood that there is a group of people who are in the same situation as I (who cares for people who has some kind of relationship with them). We knew that our wages are below the wages of other employees.
We asked one of the manager why is that and received an information that I just reprint:
Family Caregivers/Preferred Workers, who do not service any clients other than their family member/loved one, are not eligible for raises.
