The company has been in the industry for over 40 years and has been providing exceptional talent to facilities in Missouri and Kansas, covering the Greater Kansas City Metro Area, including Overland Park, outstate Missouri and Kansas.

One of the most pressing issues in the workforce today is the need to increase hourly wages. The AGA Group will help its clients find solutions to this problem. The company has been working with state policymakers to address the issue of low wages for direct care workers. States have taken a variety of actions through provider rate increases and minimum wage policies through the Medicaid program as two strategies to address recruitment and retention.

Raise the Wage Act

The Raise the Wage Act of 2021 would gradually raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2025 and narrow racial and gender pay gaps. This would be a significant step forward in addressing the issue of low wages in the United States.

Increasing hourly wages is not only the right thing to do, but it also makes good business sense. Higher wages can lead to increased productivity, better employee morale, and reduced turnover rates. This can ultimately result in cost savings for employers and better outcomes for patients.


Increasing the hourly wages is a critical issue that needs to be addressed. The AGA Group will work with policymakers and employers to find solutions to this problem. By increasing hourly wages, we can improve the lives of workers and provide better care to patients.
