Domestic workers care for the things we value the most: our families and our homes. They care for our children, provide essential support for seniors and people with disabilities to live with dignity at home, and perform the domestic work that makes all other work possible. They are skilled and caring professionals, but for many years, they have labored in the shadows, and their work has not been valued.
For the past five years, the National Domestic Workers Alliance has been working to change that. In 2010, we won the first-ever Domestic Worker Bill of Rights in New York state, guaranteeing basic labor protections to domestic workers throughout the state. In 2013, Hawai'i became the second state to pass labor protections for domestic workers, and the a Domestic Worker Bill of Rights is currently being considered by the California state legislature.
