Are there too many places offering better pay than $15? What is everyone doing except working for that amount? All that I know is that in our small community, people have difficulty finding providers for kids with special needs. Respite providers that just watch the kids so that parents can do other things and habilitation providers that actually work with them on skills. For respite, the state pays $16.55 an hour, and the agencies usually pay minimum wage. For habilitation, the state pays $21.54, and agencies usually pay a dollar more [than minimum wage].

I do not think there are many job opportunities, so are people preferring to work at McDonald's to helping people with special needs, or are they just not working?
