Well kat, I know some great caseworkers and your point is well taken......Not exactly the best paid or supported profession. Also true of case aides and support staff. But unlike test pilots, there are a few "old, bold caseworkers." Not many I grant you, but some. I use the term "caregiver" to mean those outside of an agency, but directly involved in the life of the person. Parents, relatives, foster, etc.....THESE people have EVERYTHING to gain by standing up to the ridiculous crap that goes on and when they don't, they lose. And so does the person they love.
