Caring at a Cost (2005)

$0.00

CPI Report

Description

The health care industry is typically seen as one of the shining stars of San Diego’s economy – a rapidly growing industry with high wages and strong demand for skilled employees. However, the health care industry is also characterized by a large portion of low-wage occupations – 35 percent of the jobs earn a median hourly wage below a self-sufficiency wage for San Diego County. As part of an examination of employment at health care providers in San Diego, we conducted an in-depth case study of employment among lower paid employees at Children’s Hospital – San Diego (CHSD). Specifically, this report focuses its analysis on the lower paid clerical, service and maintenance employees.
