PAY DISPARITIES FUELING "BREWING CRISIS" IN HUMAN SERVICES SECTOR

STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, OCT. 10, 2017.....Fourteen months after the signing of a law calling for equal pay across gender lines, representatives from human services agencies asked legislators for help closing a different sort of pay gap.

Mark Schueppert, the general counsel and vice president of human resources for the Needham-based Justice Resource Institute, said some of his organization's staff works in the same building as state employees who are doing similar jobs but earning more money, resulting in "literally dozens" of workers leaving for state jobs in the last three years.

"Our employees are talking to state employees, hearing how much they make," Schueppert told the Joint Committee on Children, Families and Persons with Disabilities on Tuesday. "And just in the last month I've had direct care workers, nurses and social workers come to me complaining about how much they're making and how much state employees are making, and why is there the disparity."
