Health healthcare workers who serve seniors and Minnesotans with disabilities will see a 5 percent wage increase, thanks to an increase in reimbursement rates. Nursing homes also received additional funding this year
The increases come under a new law passed this year that has taken effect this month.
Some employees of the Winona County Developmental Achievement
Center, ORC Industries, and Home and Community Options will be getting the salary increases.
Governor Mark Dayton said paying these workers fairly for their dedication and professionalism is essential, and he strongly supports this increase.
