A letter from a Direct Support Professional citing the need for an increase is DSP wages:
A huge crowd filled the Minnesota
Capitol Rotunda in recent days to let our legislators know that there is a
problem that needs solving this year. It
is about people with disabilities and staff members, or direct support
professionals, who provide the services they need. We love to see people with disabilities in
the community. They’re working, they’re
out at parks, they volunteer and more.
