Tell Gov. Quinn: Their work has value.
JoAnn is a caseworker in the Department of Children & Family Services (DCFS) in Chicago. Along with hundreds of co-workers across Illinois, it's her job to keep kids safe, working with troubled families to prevent child abuse and neglect.
But Governor Pat Quinn doesn't value JoAnn's work.
In union contract negotiations, Gov. Quinn is trying to take money from JoAnn's pocket and that of every other state employee. He's pushing to freeze their wages for three years and make them pay much more for health insurance for themselves and their families.
Sign the petition to stand with JoAnn and every state employee.
Caseworkers, investigators and other DCFS employees are an essential line of defense to protect at-risk kids from abuse and neglect. Governor Quinn should value their work and drop his push for wage freezes and steep health insurance cost hikes. I'm standing with state employees for a fair contract with decent wages and affordable health care.
