Crisis in L.A. County: Asking for the Humanly Impossible of Eligibility Workforce

When L.A County's most vulnerable families are in need of critical services including access to life-saving medical care, their first stop has to be getting their case approved through an L.A. County Eligibility Caseworker. However Eligibility Caseworkers are being asked to do the humanly impossible: to individually process the cases of over 3,000 families! That's right, throughout L.A. County, Eligibility Workers and Clerical Staff are drowning in a sea of cases with urgent demands from more and more families in desperate need and a system that has yet to catch up.

On Tuesday, the Los Angeles City Council cleared the way to put the City on track to bring up the minimum wage up to $15.00/hr. by 2020.
