For 74 years, domestic workers have been denied the basic labor protections most workers take for granted in our country. Generations ago, when the Fair Labor Standards Act was passed guaranteeing American workers the right to minimum wage, overtime and a day of rest each week, domestic workers were excluded from those basic protections. At the time, domestic work wasn’t considered “real work”.
Today, we know that domestic work is real work — from New York to California, we know it’s the work that makes all other work possible. It’s time to put an end to 74 years of exclusion and extend dignity, respect, and basic labor protections to domestic workers across the nation.
We are now on the verge of passing a domestic workers bill.
