from what I understand.




Join Domestic Workers United and the New York Domestic Workers Justice Coalition in honoring the work and contributions of domestic workers & remembering the many who have suffered exploitation without labor standards through the generations.

Join domestic workers, their friends and family for testimonies about their experiences. They will be highlighting the need for the passage of the “Domestic Workers Bill of Rights,” New York statewide legislation to recognize domestic workers and establish fair labor standards, including an annual cost of living wage increase, paid vacation, sick days and holidays, notice and severance pay, health care and protection from discrimination and unfair firing.
