Just wanted to point you towards this news article.
Domestic Workers’ Rights
Apparently New York State is about to pass a bill that provides domestic workers (i.e. nannies, cleaners, etc) with some basic regulation and rights. I think this is phenomenal--just like their efforts at regulating farm help.
One of the great challenges of managing this industry is that these workers are practically invisible--in people's homes, usually foreigners, often live-in, and usually subject to many very different kinds of treatment.
It's an industry also extremely vulnerable to human trafficking, exploitation and abuse.
I hope to see more movement on this--do you have any updates?
