pay is low

I live in Orange County and the pay for aides are less than NoVa.  The pay for aides are way too low.  The take home pay aides make either agency or Consumer Directed should be a minimum of $15 per hour.   At home aides are still more cost effective for the state than a group/nursing home even at a higher pay rate.

WHY would anyone work the job especially with EVV?  was this what DMAS was going for?
