In a move applauded by service workers, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on April 4 agreed that contracted workers at four county hospitals will be provided fully paid health care benefits, the Los Angeles Daily News reports. Once changes to their contracts are completed, the sweeping action will provide 100% employer-paid health insurance for about 2,000 janitorial, environmental and food service workers at hospitals owned and operated by the county.
