Nannies, housecleaners, and home care workers give so much to so many, but they rarely receive the thanks they deserve.
That’s why, in honor of International Domestic Workers Day, we’ve created a virtual ‘thank you’ card for domestic workers.
If you believe that those who care for us deserve care, dignity, and gratitude, then join us and thank domestic workers today for doing the work that makes our lives easier.
Domestic workers do the work that makes all other work possible — caring for children so that parents can go to work, keeping our elderly loved ones comfortable and safe in their homes, and more.
But around the world, domestic workers are some of the most exploited and vulnerable workers anywhere.
International Domestic Workers Day (June 16) marks the anniversary of the 2011 passage of the International Labor Organization (ILO) Convention 189 for Decent Work for Domestic Workers, establishing international labor law for domestic workers.
Since its passage, domestic workers have used this day to honor the vibrancy of the leadership of domestic workers in the fight for better protections across the world, including across the United States.
We are so proud to stand in solidarity with workers who make all other work possible in the U.S. and around the world, and we are honored to be a part of the global domestic workers movement.
