GIVE A VOICE TO OUR DISABLED

3,407 Signatures Goal: 5,000

Dear Governor Scott, There was no time for anyone associated with APD to prepare for an overnight, secret 15% pay-cut to all providers. This is going to endanger the disabled greatly. Providers cannot afford this. What other entities could survive this? Providers to the developmentally disabled population are already underpaid. This is the most vulnerable population in the state, and these cuts will pose a danger to their very safety, health and outcomes. This is always the population that gets cuts, and they are the only truly deserving population in the state that CANNOT help themselves or have a VOICE for themselves like other SPECIAL INTERESTS in Florida. How can you forsake these precious people? You are endangering a population that needs the most help and doing it in the dark of night. Please give HELP to those who NEED it. Would you have cut salaries of anyone else by 15%?

The reality of this is that it is not 15%.  It is up to 40% for some services, and I believe that some people will not even be making minimum wage.  What other services and/or salaries are you slashing 40%.  This will cause our loved ones to have no one to provide services for them.  Agencies will have to close.  Our loved ones will have no place to go. ...... This was not well thought out at all, and there should have been outreach and communication with this community to work through issues together...
