I get PAID $9/hour to be someone's friend. The state (DSPD) reimburses the nonprofit I work for when I take a guy with retardation to buy his food and do his laundry. But they also pay me to take him to the movies, etc. I also get paid to do virtually nothing with another couple, and a woman who works at Carls Jr. but never needs a "job coach" like me.

  1. This person raises a valid point. Parents, who know the disabled person better than anyone else, can't work because they are caregivers yet the state will pay strangers. Its a terrible waste.
    In our case, we'd have at least three people being paid. Why not pay us instead, even both of us as one, if the state must pay anyone?
