A new study finds nursing home workers are being let go from their job at home care for children, and it’s not because of health care costs.
The study, by the University of Texas at Austin and the U.S. Census Bureau, says that nursing home residents are being laid off as they seek new jobs, with some saying they’re being let down by wages and benefits.
In their study, the authors also say that nursing care workers have lost about 1 million jobs since 2005.
The report is based on a 2015 study by the Pew Research Center that estimated that the nursing home industry lost 2.7 million jobs during that time period.
The researchers say that the number of nursing home jobs has dropped since then, although it is still far higher than in the private sector.
The nursing home is a profession that includes homes for older adults, the disabled, and people with disabilities, and has been growing steadily for the past decade.
But the nursing care industry is losing jobs to the private, non-profit sector, according to the study.
The decline in nursing home employment comes as the nation is dealing with an increase in opioid overdoses.
In the past few years, the U,D.C. coronavirus has killed more than 500 people.
There have been more than 40,000 cases of hepatitis C, and the death toll from the virus has reached 1,100.
The nurses and aides who are being affected by the health care crisis say the nursing homes have been the most vulnerable to the downturn.
The nurse-nursing home industry is booming, but it’s becoming increasingly difficult for these jobs to be filled, said Kimberly Roper, a nursing home resident and president of the American Association of State Nurses.
Roper and her husband, David, are in their late 70s and live in an aging nursing home in northwest Austin.
Their husband retired from the nursing profession a decade ago, and they’re in the process of moving out of their current home.
Ropers has worked for years at home health services and in a nursing facility, but she is retiring from her job as a nurse-neurologist.
Her retirement is not guaranteed, and she’s looking for new opportunities, she said.
We have been working in nursing homes for 35 years.
We’re getting old, but we don’t want to get old, she told CBS News.
Roped to nursing home workThe number of nurse- and home-care aides who have been laid off at nursing homes in Texas is higher than the national average, according the researchers.
About one-third of nursing homes surveyed by the researchers reported layoffs, while only about 10 percent reported layoffs among the entire nursing workforce.
The median number of layoffs for nursing home employees was 4.7 percent.
And about one-fifth of nursing centers surveyed said their workforce had been cut in the past two years.
Ropers and her colleagues say that in many nursing homes, the nursing staff has been leaving for other jobs, including full-time positions as housekeepers and housekeeping attendants.
Rops, who was the president of a Texas nursing union that represents nursing home managers, said that while she and her family have been paying the bills for the last five years, she doesn’t know if she’ll be able to keep her home.
And while her husband and the rest of her family are working full time, she says they’re not sure they will be able or willing to continue.
“We’re living paycheck to paycheck,” Rops said.
“We’re not getting anywhere.”
For her part, Roper said she plans to go back to nursing school to become a nurse, but with a much higher pay.
