Legendary Civil Rights-era activist Esther Cooper Jackson, distinguished
labor activists alongside of cheering nannies, housekeepers, and elderly
caregivers raised their voices in tribute to domestic workers and
demanded basic benefits, such as paid leave, and notice, & protection
from discrimination by passage of Senator Diane Savino’s and
Assemblyman Keith Wright's Domestic Workers Bill of Rights which
would make it the first, and hopefully not the last state to give justice to
domestic workers.Recently both the NYS Senate and Assembly passed
differing versions of the domestic workers bill of rights. The bill is in
conference committee and then goes to Governor Patterson for his
signature or veto.
