Ask Candidates About Their Plans for Solving the Workforce Crisis!

Election season is upon us again in Wisconsin! The statewide primary will be held August 14 and the general election is on November 6. 

Please attend candidate forums, listening sessions or engage candidates in conversation if you see them at community events this summer. 

Here are some questions would could ask:

1. What steps will you take to address the direct care worker crisis that is being driven by inadequate Medicaid reimbursement rates?

2. How will you ensure that Wisconsin’s long-term care system has an adequate provider network that guarantees access to care in the community?

3. Do you support continued funding of the $25 million of state funds provided to Family Care providers in the last state budget to help support direct care workers?
