In California, there are over 300,000 domestic workers that work as house-cleaners, nannies, and caregivers in private homes. Nearly two million households in California rely on domestic workers to care for their homes and loved ones. In light of a history of exclusion from basic labor protections, domestic workers have advocated for over a decade to uplift the dignity of domestic work in California state law and to secure fundamental labor protections for this under-recognized workforce.
“Our Work, Our Dignity: Making Our Rights a Reality” is the 2018 campaign of the California Domestic Workers Coalition that seeks to advance respect of domestic worker rights to all California homes.
Together we will make #RightsAReality!
