On World Day for Decent Work, Domestic Workers Mobilize for Fair Workplace Treatment

October 7, 2013

Domestic workers are the backbone of our families. Nannies, caregivers and house cleaners keep our communities and our homes running but have been undervalued and left to work without many key legal protections. As a result, many are vulnerable to abuse and exploitation on the job.

Today, on the World Day for Decent Work, domestic workers are taking action to gain decent work, which means dignity, respect and labor protections on the job. 

Sign the petition to support the passage of the Massachusetts Domestic Workers' Bill of Rights.
