Josh Shapiro Supports Patient Safety Act, Lifting Wages for Healthcare Workers (March 19, 2022)

With gas prices, inflation, and corporate profits skyrocketing, healthcare workers are ready for meaningful change in Pennsylvania. This election, our jobs, health insurance, and ability to provide for our families are on the ballot.

Josh Shapiro has pledged to expand the power of union members, raise wages, and end the short-staffing crisis. He will continue to stand up to powerful corporate interests, like the healthcare and hospital industry, who line their pockets while too many patients and residents suffer.

Josh Shapiro is a proven leader for healthcare workers:

Strong supporter of safe staffing policies for nursing homes and hospitals, and has pledged to pass our Patient Safety Act to improve care

Took on the multi-billion dollar hospital system, UPMC, and won, and has promised to continue to hold corporate healthcare accountable to the people

As Attorney General, criminally prosecuted and jailed bad nursing home operators who lied about staffing and endangered residents

Will expand #UnionsForAll so workers have the right to join a union to fight for more.

“Josh Shapiro HONORS AND RESPECTS essential workers for the important, life-saving work we do every day. We must elect Josh Shapiro Governor to strengthen our union, protect our rights, and make sure our voices are heard and our votes counted!”
