Dear Employees of CLO,
After year of advocating for better wages and recognition for direct care staff, the State of Michigan, along with Integrated Services of Kalamazoo are taking steps that recognize the value that direct care professionals bring to the greater community. CLO as well as many other providers have been struggling to recruit a caring and competent workforce to serve our most vulnerable citizens.
It is my great pleasure to announce that CLO will be increasing the base wage to $15.60 an hour. All current direct care employees will receive an additional $2.00 an hour. This, along with the current $2.25 that you are receiving from the State of Michigan will result in a $4.25 increase. This will become effective August 1, 2021. If you have any questions please email Karen Burpee, HR Director; firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your loyalty to CLO and those we serve!
