On Thursday, March 15, domestic workers and supporters will gather at Seattle City Hall to assemble a village of thousands of diapers and gloves to represent the thousands of nannies and house cleaners who work in homes across the city.
Why? Nannies, house cleaners, cooks, & gardeners in Seattle are leading the way for the rest of the state by organizing for a citywide Domestic Workers’ Bill of Rights. This will ensure domestic workers get the basic rights and benefits every worker needs — like healthcare and retirement, protection from harassment and discrimination, workers’ comp and unemployment, and a voice in the issues that affect their jobs.
Domestic workers have been an invisible part of our workforce for too long — and we need to make sure they’re seen & heard. So workers will be creating a massive display of their tools of the trade outside of City Hall to make sure they’re seen by as many people as possible! Then, they'll be heading inside to share their stories directly with City Council members.
Domestic workers in Seattle are leading the way for Washington. We need to make sure they have a seat at the table when it comes to creating legislation that will improve their working conditions. If you want to show your support for their work and the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights, click here!
All kinds of workers are coming together to support the nannies, house cleaners, cooks, and gardeners who have worked in the shadows of our labor laws for far too long. We can’t do it without your support!
