14. Hey she! Like Pauline Beck said..

"It's a calling".. and I know exactly how she feels because I felt that way about my job.

As I've mentioned.. What a journey PBO has been on for this to happen. From "walking a day in Pauline Beck's shoes"( I love how he pitched in with her chores and John Thornton saying it looked like Obama knew what he was doing) while Senator Obama to becoming POTUS and making sure HomeCare Givers get as fair a shake as other workers.

"The Obama administration said on Tuesday it will extend the protection of U.S. minimum wage and overtime law to almost two million home health workers who assist the elderly and disabled, setting an assertive tone for the new U.S. labor secretary."

Btw, there was lots of grumbling about Thomas Perez before PBO nominated him.. glad he was Confirmed!

BOG
