NYCLU Calls For Support Of Domestic Workers

 The moment is critical. This Tuesday, the New York State Senate is scheduled to vote on the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights.We need your support now! 

 

For too long, domestic workers have been excluded from basic labor protections, a legacy leftover from the Jim Crow era. 

Many experience long hours, low pay and even physical, psychological and sexual abuse. And because 93 percent of domestic workers are women and 95 percent are people of color, this injustice tends to affect New York's most marginalized communities. 

But there is a solution. The Domestic Workers Bill of Rights would provide New York’s 200,000 domestic workers with the basic labor protections that have been afforded other workers for nearly a century, such as a day off every week, overtime pay, paid sick days, the right to form a union and recognition under the state’s Human Rights Law.

Stand up and tell your senator to vote YES for the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights. All New Yorkers deserve a safe place to work!
