Governor’s budget: No overtime for home-care workers
Sacramento Business Journal

Gov. Jerry Brown’s proposed state budget for the In-Home Supportive Services Program includes a 6.4 percent increase in funding but would prohibit providers from working overtime. The budget increase is to accommodate growth in the average number of seniors or persons with disabilities served by caregivers in their own homes. The caseload is estimated at 453,000, up about 1.2 percent from 2013.
