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.
