We Can't Wait: Meet the Home Healthcare Worker Who Inspired the President

Pauline Beck is at the White House today to watch as President Obama fulfills a promise he made to her four years ago

Today Pauline Beck will be at the White House to watch as President Obama announces proposed changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) that will affect home healthcare workers like herself. Today's event has special significance for Pauline, because it was the day then-Senator Obama spent "in her shoes" that informed him of the important work these Americans do and the need to level the playing field so they are fairly compensated for their efforts.
