Personal Care Attendant
A group of health experts and faith leaders were at the state capitol Monday to ask lawmakers to raise wages to improve the health of workers. Statistics show that low-income workers die eight-years earlier than other workers. Shaquonica Johnson, 37, has been a personal care attendant for 15 years. She works several different jobs at $8.50 an hour to care for her two children.
A former personal care attendant has been sentenced for stealing the identity of a minor in her care, the United States Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday.
A 20-year-old Burnsville man is accused of assaulting a woman in front of her children after she refused to have a sexual relationship with him, according to criminal charges filed Thursday in Dakota County District Court.
