#DignityRising In California

Currently domestic workers in CA are leading a fight to pass SB1015 (Leyva): The 2016 Domestic Workers Bill of Rights to secure dignity for their families and the families that depend on them for care and support. SB1015 continues the success of AB241 (Ammiano - 2013), which granted overtime protections to privately employed domestic workers. However, AB241 includes a sunset provision and will expire on January 1st, 2017. SB1015 would support dignified labor standards for California’s domestic workers by preserving the right to overtime. Since the 2013 establishment of overtime protections, domestic workers who attend to children, seniors, and people with disabilities report more sustainable schedules, fairer pay, and an overall improvement in their health and quality of life. 

The majority of domestic workers are immigrant women who work to support their own families as primary breadwinners. On August 26th- National Women's Equality Day, we celebrate and honor domestic workers as migrant women workers, who are leading an entire movement to assert the dignity of their work and of their families. At the core, this bill is about dignified standards for the growing domestic work industry-- an industry that enables the rest of society to live and thrive with dignity. At the core, this bill is about dignified standards for the growing domestic work industry-- an industry that enables the rest of society to live and thrive with dignity. 

This is why domestic workers are now in need of our support!

We are a coalition of grassroots domestic worker organizations and their supporters from the labor, faith, domestic employer, women and student communities, who want to advance the rights of the domestic workers who care for our homes and our loved ones. We have come together as a statewide network to ensure that statewide laws and agencies protect domestic workers from abuse and to inspire all Californians to uphold the dignity of domestic work in our homes.
