Essential To Us

May 25 2020

Many employees in our Network are Direct Support Professionals and we feel that this campaign is important to share. We invite you to learn more about it here and support this cause as you ca.

The campaign is led by Abilities Manitoba and is endorsed and supported by the Family Advocacy Network, People First of Manitoba, The Alliance of Direct Support Professionals of Manitoba, Inclusion Winnipeg, Barrier-Free Manitoba, Community Living Manitoba and Disability Matters Vote

The goal is to help stabilize and secure the fragile disability sector workforce by implementing a $5/hour wage supplement for all Direct Support Workers working through Covid-19, and time and a half pay for anyone caring for someone who is Covid-19 positive.

As we see many essential workers being compensated for their continued, selfless work during an unprecedented global pandemic, we continue to see Direct Support Workers who support people with intellectual disability treated poorly, reflecting our society and our governments overall view of people with intellectual disability.

Abilities Matters created a full page ad in the Winnipeg Free Press on May 8.You may also see ads in some rural newspapers, bus billboards and rural billboards.

Please send this letter to your MLA and the Premier to support this campaign and your fellow essential workers.

You can share via social media using the hashtag #essentialtous
