Introduction of the
National Domestic Workers Bill of Rights in the U.S. Congress
The Bill of Rights is a groundbreaking national legislation to create strong rights and workplace protections for domestic workers across the country. The bill, co-sponsored by Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Ben Ray Luján and Representative Pramila Jayapal, will create a national standard that provides the respect, dignity, and recognition that all domestic workers deserve.
It will be a long road to get the bill passed into law, but the introduction of the bill is a huge step forward. This was a big day for every nanny, housecleaner and home care worker in the United States! Here’s how you can be part of the action.
