Good article on reasons for low pay of home health aides

Our thanks to Robert Hiltonsmith for his analysis of the reasons for the low pay of home health workers. I would add that another reason might be the fact that the reference price for paid home health work may be the unpaid family caregiver. And that group won't be able, or won't be willing, to sustain the coming aging of the baby boomer generation as the caregiver ratio drops (AARP report, “The Aging of the Baby Boom and the Growing Care Gap.")
