As a group, domestic workers are some of the most underpaid workers in the U.S. Due to their exclusion from major labor protections, they’re vulnerable to wage theft, sexual harassment, systemically low wages and poor working conditions. This bill would make major steps to address these challenges.
By raising the cost of domestic workers’ wages and making their industry more regulated, this bill would inevitably raise the cost of hiring domestic workers. This would price middle- and lower-income households out of hiring much-needed help that allows parents in those income groups to hire household assistance.
