Over 100 Domestic Workers Rally for Basic Labor Standards

Domestic Workers Rally

Earlier this week, over 100 domestic care workers rallied at the White House to urge the Obama Administration and the Department of Labor to end the delays in advancing new regulations that would provide home care workers with basic labor protections.

It has been 75 years since the passage of the Fair Labor Standards Act, which unfairly excluded caregivers from minimum wage and overtime protections.  It’s been almost TWO years since President Obama announced he would change this outdated law. How can we ask the people who care for our families to work without overtime and minimum wage?

Momentum has been growing – and we are close to winning these basic protections.  But, we are not there yet.  Two million home care workers – most of whom are women – are still waiting and we must keep the pressure on!
