I just added my signature. Will you? -- "America's 1.7 million home care workers stand on the threshold of earning the same federal labor protections that most workers take for granted – and just five minutes of your time can make the difference. On December 15, 2011 President Obama proposed a rule change that, if approved, will finally provide some measure of justice to home care workers who have long been exempted from minimum wage and overtime laws. Right now the U.S. Department of Labor is accepting public comments on the proposed change, which would correct part of a longstanding legacy of devaluing the work of women and African Americans." -  http://www.jewishjustice.org/expand-fair-labor-protections-home-care-workers
