North Dakota Lawmakers Considering Raises For Employees Who Support Disabled People.

January 29, 2019

Disability Scoop (1/29, Emerson) reports in continuing coverage that North Dakota lawmakers are considering whether to give employees who support people with disabilities a wage increase. The article says “wages for direct support workers have remained stagnant due to state budget cuts.” The state governor’s “budget proposal includes a 1 percent inflationary increase each year of the next two-year budget cycle for community providers, but providers are seeking a 3 percent increase for each year of the biennium to ‘catch up,’ or remedy flat funding.”
