Reveal’s Caregivers and Takers investigation uncovered widespread exploitation of caregivers in senior board-and-care homes across the United States. Many of these caregivers are immigrants who earn about $2 an hour to work around the clock with no days off, while operators rake in millions.

Reveal found that care home operators across the nation broke minimum wage, overtime or record-keeping laws in at least 1,400 cases over the last decade.
