We seek home health care workers who must drive their vehicles between clients’ homes and drive their vehicles to assist clients with medical appointments, grocery shopping or other errands. Like pizza delivery drivers, home healthcare workers are unlikely to receive sufficient reimbursement for their vehicle expenses, which results in net wages less than the minimum wage (hourly wage – unreimbursed vehicle expenses = net wages below minimum wage).
