(St. Paul, MN) -- A group of personal care attendants wants to be able to form a union and gathered in Saint Paul today (Wed) to launch their campaign to change state law. The state currently sets wages for the in-home care workers because Medicaid picks up the cost. But Sumer Spika (SUM'-er SPEE'-kuh) says the workers should have a say on their wages and benefits. Spika cares for a six-year-old girl with multiple medical problems and works for an agency that's paid by the state. The Service Employees International Union is assisting the workers in their effort to unionize. Officials say they're hoping for a more receptive ear now that Democrats control both the Minnesota House and Senate.
