#DoYourJob and Pass the HEROES Act
It’s the worst possible timing: coronavirus cases are spiraling out of control just as the relief programs that are keeping families financially and physically safe are about to end.
This means nannies, house cleaners, and caregivers won't be able to access unemployment benefits, mortgage relief, and other supports put in place early in the pandemic -- but they also won’t be able to safely return to work. This is especially devastating to Black, Latinx, and immigrant workers, who have been hit hardest during this crisis.
The HEROES Act would give domestic workers on the front lines of this crisis the immediate support and protection they need to stop families from being plunged into poverty -- but right now it’s stalled in the Senate.
In this moment, the call to action is crystal clear: call on Senators to #DoYourJob and support vulnerable workers by passing the HEROES Act!
