Children’s Services workers at Montgomery County could go on strike soon after contract negotiations with the county broke down early this week. Children’s Services facilitates foster care and adoption and works with abused and neglected kids and their families. About 230 county workers with the Professional Guild of Ohio (PGO) Council 12 are asking for higher pay increases than the county is willing to offer, and more than 100 protested at a county commission meeting Tuesday.
In this WYSO Weekend preview, For Love Of Children's President Beth Mann talks about what their organization is doing to ease the foster care experience for kids, and what other steps they're taking to help these children transition into adulthood.
