A new government initiative will force employers to consider your political views when considering your social work positions.
Social workers will also be asked to consider whether a candidate is a “friend of the people”.
It is part of a crackdown on “social welfare extremism” in which the US government wants to get rid of “the social welfare state” in order to cut down on poverty.
The Social Work Jobs Coalition is designed to make employers “more accountable for the value of their social work and for the integrity of their relationships with their clients and employees”.
The coalition, set up by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is expected to be rolled out nationwide later this year.
Its first target is the state of Pennsylvania, where the state’s welfare system is being used to create a new social worker job.
Social work is a field where there are so many different groups involved, that it can be a daunting job, said Katherine Dube, president of the Pennsylvania chapter of the American Society of Social Workers (ASSW).
“There’s so many variables,” she said.
“We want employers to understand that they have to consider what they’re doing.”
If you have a group of people that are all saying the same thing, it’s not going to be a good place to have a relationship.
“What we want is for the employer to consider that their relationship is more important than the work they do, which is to provide people with the best possible care.”
The Trump administration is also proposing to change how Medicaid is administered in the US, changing it from a block grant system to a “per capita allotment system”.
Medicaid is currently funded by a formula that provides money for people to live in states that have Medicaid eligibility.
This is called a “block grant”, where a state receives a fixed amount of money per person.
In 2018, states have the option of increasing their Medicaid funding.
The federal government, which administers the program, pays the difference between the block grant and per capita allotments.
States have the right to set their own funding levels, which would mean some states could receive more money than others.
The Trump government, however, is proposing to reduce the amount of federal funding for Medicaid from $1.8 trillion to $1 trillion.
States that have been hit hard by rising healthcare costs and rising costs of private insurance are also seeking to change the formula.
“The block grant formula was created by Congress to provide a cushion for states that are in fiscal trouble,” said Dube.
“That cushion is gone now.
States are being told to get creative and adapt. “
If you can’t pay your bills on time, you’ll have to wait for the Medicaid block grant to get wiped out.”
States are being told to get creative and adapt.
They can’t just sit back and wait.
“The US is one of the few countries in the world where the government does not pay social workers.
Social worker jobs are one of several areas where the Trump administration has proposed reducing the number of jobs that need to be created.
Social Work Jobs coalition member, Dr Jennifer Kagan, said social workers needed to have more “fearlessness” in their work.”
In social work, we’re all at risk of becoming isolated in our communities and unable to reach out and engage with others,” she told the BBC.”
Our ability to connect with our patients and care for them is at stake.
“Dr Kagan said the Trump Administration’s proposed cuts would be detrimental to social work as well as to the country as a whole.”
Social work isn’t a job for the rich.
It’s a job that is designed for people who have to work very hard to make ends meet, especially in times of economic uncertainty,” she added.”
When people feel that they’re being denied that, they feel very isolated and that’s not healthy.
“In the UK, where social workers have been at the centre of the recent Brexit debate, the government has also announced a crackdown.
Social Workers will be asked whether a person is a friend of the “people” and will be required to complete a questionnaire.
Social services minister Liz Truss said the government was “committed to making sure social workers are accountable to the people they are working for”.”
Social workers are at the heart of caring for the most vulnerable people in society, providing a range of services to meet the needs of people living with disabilities, including those in the most remote areas,” she wrote in a statement.”
They’re also part of the NHS, the NHS Trust, our mental health service, and we are committed to making social work more inclusive, effective and accountable to society.
“The Social Services Secretary for Scotland, Ruth Davidson, said the new social work jobs regulations would have a “significant impact” on social work.
Socialists are fighting back against the proposals, calling them a “social fascism” that would see the very idea of social work abolished.
