Vita Nursing Home Workers Honor MLK Day by Pushing for Their Own Economic Justice

MLK3

On Monday, January 21, in honor of Martin Luther King Jr Day, Kisha Matthews, a CNA at Garden Spring Center nursing home in Willow Grove, joined hundreds of workers, activists, and community organizers at Bible Way Baptist Church in Philadelphia to talk about how we build power and change in Pennsylvania.

MLK2Kisha shared her story about her nursing home’s new owner, Vita Healthcare. Vita has slashed wages for some workers up to $11k a year and made healthcare benefits unaffordable with $10k deductibles for families and monthly premiums up to $900 at Garden Spring and Somerton Center in Philadelphia, driving down standards at both nursing homes.

Workers are standing up for their residents and fighting back against these cuts. Stand with them. Show your support at bit.ly/vitamlk
