Everyday, 200,000 domestic workers (nannies, elderly companions, housekeepers) in New York make it possible for their employers to go to work; most are employed without a living wage, healthcare, and basic labor protections. A long-standing history of exclusion from basic labor laws, the devaluing of women’s work and women of color workers, along with the physical isolation in their employers’ homes creates vulnerability to abuse.
Domestic workers in New York are organizing for power, respect and a Domestic Workers Bill of Rights, to recognize the workforce and establish basic labor standards including an annual cost of living wage increase, notice of termination and severance pay, paid sick days, holidays and vacation, and health care . This legislative session, we're making a big push to be heard and change the course of history for this critical workforce. Join us and take a stand in support of justice, recognition and respect for all workers.
