Rep. Janice Hahn stood with striking Los Angeles County social workers, Dec. 6, at the Department of Children and Family Services headquarters in Los Angeles.
On Dec. 5, thousands of Los Angeles County Children’s Social Workers went on strike at DCFS facilities across the southland, protesting the unfair labor practices.
Contract negotiations with the county came to a halt recently. The social workers are asking for the board of supervisors to:
- Reduce social worker-to-child ratios
- Hire and train more social workers
- Account for child safety.
