Costs and Benefits of a Wage Increase for Home Help Workers

This report analyzes the costs and benefits of the State of Michigan increasing the wages of Home Help workers. Home Help is one of several programs that provides for low-income individuals who need long-term care but do not want to move out of their homes. The report analyzes the effect of higher wages by focusing on two types of benefits and costs: public and private. The authors hypothesize that raising wages will reduce turnover and improve care, attracting more clients to the program.
