Take action today to support CA Senate Bill 686
BIG news for domestic workers in California:
A critical bill to advance the rights and protections for nannies, housecleaners and care workers was approved in the California state assembly last week – and now it heads to California Governor Gavin Newsom’s desk for signing!
The bill will permanently end the exclusion of domestic workers from health and safety protections, and implement health and safety practices for domestic workers in California.
We are now just one signature away from a huge step forward for domestic workers in California – and we need your help to get across the finish line.
Governor Newsom is reportedly eyeing a run for President in the future, which means he cares about his national public image and he’ll take notice if people around the country tell him this is a bill he must support.
The Health and Safety for All Workers Act will end the exclusion of domestic workers from health and safety protections, fund the growth of current domestic worker and employer education, and offer aid to low-income domestic employers for health and safety costs, like protective gear and ergonomic support.
Without these same protections that other workers have, California’s domestic workers will continue to endure exploitation, isolation, and life-threatening workplace conditions.
Everyone deserves a safe workplace, and Governor Newsom’s signature can help make that happen for tens of thousands of domestic workers in California. Add your voice to urge him to sign this critical bill ASAP.
