Message from Liberty ARC CEO Jennifer Saunders regarding Governor Andrew Cuomo not including funds in the 2017 state budget for a pay increase for our direct support professionals:

"The Governor released his budget for 2017 late last night. We are very disappointed to share that the Governor did not fund the $45 million requested to support a living wage for our employees. The Governor’s proposed budget would pay to bring workers who are below minimum wage up to the new minimum wage only. He did not provide any funding towards a living wage increase or an annual raise.

Thank you all for all of your efforts to bring attention to this critical issue. The #bFair2DirectCare Coalition will continue to take this fight into the budget session with our allies in the legislature in hopes of negotiating a change to the budget."

Karen MarieThis is no surprise. I bet if he had a family member in this situation he would pay top dollar to have the best care given. We love, support, care and provide for each individual as if they were our own family while struggling to support our families. Yet instead of granting us funding for a "living wage" they would rather worry about paying more money to those who drop fries and have no special training. Just isn't right. But we will continue to do our jobs and provide the best possible care to those we support because we truly love our jobs and know that these individuals need us!!

Lindsay FeulnerVery disappointing because I care deeply about the people I support I have to work two jobs and looking for a third. I have no paid time off if I don't work I don't get paid, no benefits, no health insurance, no vacation time my jobs are all part time I work 6 days a week so between both jobs I work about 60 hours a week. This is not fair to the people I support, my children, my family, or myself. I was at that protest it must be nice to drive in state funded vehicles my taxes pay for to help you drive around in those vehicles. You stated you support us well if you did you would allocate some of that money towards DSP's because sir without it service for people with disabilities will parish unless you intend to replace us with robots we deserve a living wage to feed our family's. Qualifying for services shouldn't be the solution we shouldn't have to be dependent on services we should make enough for the satisfaction of doing a good quality job helping people with disabilities remain in the community living full-filling lives.
