The Pennsylvania Domestic Workers Alliance is a joint project of Philadelphia Jobs with Justice and the National Domestic Workers Alliance, the nation’s leading voice for dignity and fairness for the millions of domestic workers in the United States.
Pennsylvania house cleaners, nannies, and caregivers – are coming together to win better working conditions, dignity, and justice at work. These domestic workers are systematically excluded from basic labor protections and are routinely mistreated when working in other peoples’ homes.
Domestic workers – the vast majority of whom are low wage Black and immigrant women – do the work that makes all other work possible by caring for other peoples’ homes, children, and loved ones, yet face low wages, unsafe working conditions, and sexual harassment while doing so. Across the country, workers have won stronger laws, safety, and respect on the job through organizing, developing their leadership, and fighting for justice at work. By uniting, Pennsylvania domestic workers can win respect, recognition, and inclusion in labor protections.
