In response to Unison’s care workers report 15 Minutes of Shame, Janet Morrison, Chief Executive of Independent Age, said: 

“We have a 'cut-price' care system where state-funded care is rationed only to those with the highest need. Meanwhile, the rate councils pay for it is often too low to provide anything more than the minimum wage - if that - to care workers. A care workforce that isn't being supported ultimately results in older people not being properly cared for.”
