Aaron Seyedian, owner of Well-Paid Maids, came to the Capitol on Tuesday to advocate for the statewide plan. He said it would be cheaper than the private market plan he currently pays into for his 17 employees.
Seyedian thinks a statewide plan would also improve employee retention. “If you feel your employer respects you and cares for you, you’re more likely to do a great job at work and to stay with that employer for a long time. I think it’s as basic as that,” he said.
