I totally agree. It's ridiculous when you look for a CNA job and all you see is low paying salaries. CNA's work harder than the registered nurses and are more susceptible to catching diseases. I believe their should be a raise in salary because being a CNA is not easy. It take a strong person to do this job. To all the employers paying stupid salaries to your hard working CNA's, shame on your ass!!!

We fought we won! With SIEU I ended up making $10.25 an hour.
75 cents an hour more than the average wage here.
Negotiate Fight Win!
I don't care if you join a union or not. But do work together!

This is illegal, and wrong on so many levals you need to contact your local county, and report that, if you have any documentation at all would be very helpful in your case and cause. They can not legally fire you for that. Company's use this as a tactic relying on the fact that many people do not stand up out of fear, and use this well. You also need to contact the labor and industries, and the case workers. If you do not have documentation then if you can think back on times and dates then that would be more effective. You need to not only advocate for yourself but you also need to adovocate for your clients.....

If we don't fight for our rights nothing will change. Most CNA's are women, and look at the fight women gave for their equal rights. At one time women couldn't even vote! Nothing good is easy, stay strong.

YES WE DO NEED TO FIGHT FOR BETTER PAY. CNA'S worldwide. Its sad to be working in a skilled facility the owner pulls up in a maybach and your being paid pennies and doing all the work of taking care of people barely able to pay rent and buy food and I mean BARELY! Living in a two bedroom shack with no tv because cable is a luxury. cellphone is your house phone sad. I'm just sayin! Fight FOR BETTTER PAY CNA'S NEED TO HAVE A TWO DAY WALK OUT! then they would really see who's doing all the work! CNA WALKOUT!!!

I just got my CNA, for what it sucks I work for this home health care company, working like a slave, back hurting, wiping A--, Transferring clients from wheel chairs to beds,cooking, cleaning, dressing, bathing, making beds and washing clothes all for 8.50 hr I want to Quite. I can't even afford to go to the doctor for myself.Going to school for CNA was a joke on me, I would have been better off just staying a security officer. Arizona CNA

John, you are not allowed to tell me due to hippa laws but I can imagine. I have worked the nursing homes in Jacksonville and they didn't pay much then and it seems they're not paying much now...Something is wrong with that pic. Needless to say I raced out of J'ville with the quickness and never to look back. Have you tried the State with the Mental Disabilities Patients? Or is it shut down, they used to pay a decent salary. It's been so long since I knew that little town so I'm sure all has changed. Well, John feel free to follow my blog and tell other CNA's about it: wp.me/3KVRw
