Earn $15 an hour wage at eHark

minimumwageprotestors

The fight to raise the Federal Minimum wage to $15/hour received a considerable amount of coverage.  While the bill to do so failed in the Senate, it prompted a lot of discussion and enthusiasm among low-wage workers in the food service industry where the tipped wage has stayed at $2.13 for years. 

The good news is that to earn $15/hour won't need a presidential decree - Service Providers at eHark are already earning $15 an hour - and they are paid to do so while working in a community of friendly and caring entrepreneurs who deliver non-medical services to seniors.

The gift of cooking

Loneliness - and the depression that often accompanyies it - are among the leading causes that can lead to older adults losing their appetite. According to to the Doctor's Health Press, sometimes just the prospect of eating alone is enough to decrease eating in the elderly.  When a senior begins to develop a habit of not cooking because they are going to eat alone, it can begin a spiral leading to weight loss, malnutrition and frailness.
