U.S. Representative Pramila Jayapal (WA-07) joined U.S. Senators Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Ben Ray Luján (D-NM) to re-introduce the National Domestic Workers Bill of Rights. The legislation is also co-sponsored by more than 100 lawmakers in the House.
This legislation comes at a critical juncture for domestic workers, especially workers of color who have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic. Our elected officials have an opportunity to deliver good-paying care jobs and better working conditions, and set a vision for our future where working people are respected across the country.
