WBEZ Speaks with Home Care Worker Margaret Heywood-Smith

01 DC Group

Margaret Heywood-Smith joined by Ai-jen Poo spoke with Sasha Ann-Simmons on WBEZ’s “Reset”. WBEZ takes a deep dive into why the Senate must pass the Build Back Better Act. Margaret was able to go into detail on why her and hundreds of other SEIU members from across the country joined together at the US Capitol last month urging congress to pass the Build Back Better Act and invest in care workers!

“Everybody needs help. As sure as you live and get older, you’re gonna need help.”

Margaret Heywood-Smith stressed the urgency that care simply can’t wait. Millions, including her own loved ones are waiting for care. It is imperative the Senate passes this transformational piece of legislation.
