Why Lizabeth came to DC for the White House Conference on Aging

Lizabeth Bonilla has been working in home care for the past 42 years, working her whole live helping others. When she moved to Las Vegas 22 years ago, she started at $10/hr and to this day still makes $10/hr. She's forced to rely on public assistance to keep a roof over the head of her daughter, two grandchildren and disabled roommate.

That's why on Monday, July 13, she joined other home care workers at the White House Conference on Aging, demanding $15 and a union rights to build the foundation of a care system that works for millions of families with aging loved ones.
