    for example, under the same exemption? If not, this is truly bizarre and exploitative. Home care workers need more training, are under heavier supervision, and have more responsibility than other personal service providers, yet are treated like shit. This is just another Republican opportunity to kick the most victimized workers in the face. Romney's "I enjoy firing those who serve me" was no some "gaffe" -- it was a flash of light exposing the depths of the GOP bully-boy soul.

    In America, a rising tide lifts all yachts and drowns the workers who built them.
