For decades, domestic workers have struggled to be recognized and to enjoy the same rights as other workers – including social protection rights. There has been significant progress over the past few years, as the workers' movement pressured in national and international forums to have labour and social protection rights enshrined in their legal system. The ILO Convention-189 and the ratification by 35 countries, is one example of such achievements. However, there is still a lot to be done in order to formally include domestic workers into social protection systems. But also, there are important steps to be taken in order to ensure that these workers are effectively enjoying their rights, even where they are legally entitled to them. In order to better understand the concepts, shortcomings, challenges and advances regarding the inclusion of domestic workers in social protection schemes I talked to Maya Stern-Plaza. Maya is the Social Protection Standards and Legal Expert of the Social Protection Department of the International Labour Organization. In addition to supporting the ratification and application of international social security standards she is also the Department's focal point for domestic workers. She is the main author of the report “Making the right to social security a reality for domestic workers: A global review of policy trends, statistics and extension strategies”, which is being launched today, June 16th, the International Domestic Workers' Day. *Our theme music is Focus from AA Aalto (Creative Commons) ---- References ILO report “Making the right to social security a reality for domestic workers: A global review of policy trends, statistics and extension strategies” https://www.ilo.org/global/publications/WCMS_848280/lang--en/index.htm “Ten Years Since Winning C189: Domestic Workers Become an Unstoppable Movement”, by IDWF and WIEGO https://www.wiego.org/sites/default/files/resources/file/C189%20Ten%20Years%20Since%20Winning%20C189%20for%20web_0.pdf "Making C189 Real": The Domestic Workers Project https://www.wiego.org/making-c189-real-domestic-workers-project Blog: What's Changed for Domestic Workers since C189?

Respect, recognition, and higher wages for domestic workers

In this episode of Work in Progress, my guest is Ai-jen Poo, president of the National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA). We got the chance to sit down together at the Milken Institute Global Conference last week in Beverly Hills to discuss the status of domestic workers in today's workforce. The NDWA supports policies and programs designed to give the nearly 2.5 million nannies, housecleaners, and home care workers who care for our loved ones and our homes the respect, recognition, and rights they deserve. Two years into COVID, most caregivers and care workers are back at work, but most family caregivers are coming back at a much slower rate, says Poo. She tells me these are "mostly women – disproportionately women of color – because they lack really good care options that are affordable and accessible" themselves. NDWA is part of a group of 90 labor leaders urging the Senate to pass through budget reconciliation the Child Care for Working Families Act which would help working parents get back to work by lowering child care costs, getting families more child care options, and boosting wages for child care workers. "We have shortages of workers in child care and in direct care for older adults and people with disabilities and that is because the wages for the workforce have not increased," says Poo. Seventy percent of domestic workers earn less than $15 an hour, according to a recent survey by NDWA. "You can understand why there's a really difficult choice there between working and staying home and caring for your own family members," she adds. "This is a huge issue and a little bit of a vicious cycle where until we secure the care workforce, it's gonna be harder for family caregivers across sectors to go back to work." The NDWA is also pushing the U.S. Congress to pass the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights Act. "The bill addresses the historic exclusions from the 1930s and would bring the workforce into the 21st century, creating protections from discrimination and harassment and addressing things like the need for paid sick days, the need for training, and the need for a voice at work," explains Poo. The House bill repeals the exemption of domestic live-in employees from certain minimum wage and maximum hour requirements. It requires employers to provide domestic workers with a written agreement covering wages, sick leave, benefits, and other matters. Employers must provide written notice of termination and provide at least 30 days of lodging and two weeks of severance pay to terminated live-in employees. Poo argues that there is an urgency to getting this piece of legislation passed. "It is a full-time living for more than 2.5 million people every day and it's high time that we recognized it as a profession. There is a culture that when we don't recognize something as legitimate as a career, as a profession, having real value in our economy, it creates a kind of shadowy dynamic where anything goes," explains Poo. "You might find a family who actually does see your work as a true profession and treats you with respect and pays you a living wage, maybe even offers you benefits. And then you have the whole other end of the spectrum, where you have cases of human trafficking. You have rape and sexual assault. You have people who are treated as less than human, and everything in between, because there's no standards. "There's no guidelines. Even if you want to do the right thing, sometimes it's hard to know what that is in this environment that's not really recognized."

Is your legislation on the infamous Chamber of Commerce "job killer" list? Is your campaign facing stiff opposition from corporate America with its infinite resources? In a battle of David and Goliath, how can marginalized communities come out on top? Today I am honored to be joined by Victor Narro, a nationally recognized expert on immigrant and low-income workers. Project Director at the UCLA Labor Center, Mr. Narro is also on faculty at the UCLA Department of Labor and Workplace Studies. An immigrant and workers' rights activist for several decades, he previously served as Co-Executive Director of Sweatshop Watch and Workers' Rights Project Director for the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA). Mr. Narro was instrumental in the recent passage of the landmark worker protection bill SB 62 (Durazo), the Garment Worker Protection Act despite, facing fierce opposition from corporate interests. SB 62 was sponsored by the Garment Workers Center, the Western Center on Law and Poverty, and Bet Tzedek. In banning the exploitative "piece rate" payment system and for the first time holding retailers liable for wage theft committed by their subcontractors, the bill has international implications. In this episode we discuss: - recognizing our interconnectedness - how organizing campaigns by Garment Workers, Day Laborers, and Domestic Workers serve as a model for future organizing efforts - how non-traditional alliances helped push SB 62 to victory - why we should embrace the never-ending process of relationship building "Relationship matters. Interconnectedness matters. Otherwise we're not going to be successful in carrying out the work for justice." - Victor Narro Transcript of this episode Hosted by Kristina Bas Hamilton, founder of KBH Advocacy.

The 1% and a billionaire tax are mainstream concepts today — but they weren't always so well-known. Back in 2011, Occupy protesters promoted these fringe ideas. The populist socio-political movement sprang up from the streets in Boston and elsewhere before becoming a massive international happening. Occupy's message about social and economic inequality changed how many Americans think and talk about economic inequality today. Ten years ago, the protestors who flocked to Occupy Boston were considered a threat when they took over Dewey Square. Hundreds gathered to become a part of the activist community which included functioning space with clothing and kitchen tents, media and even a library. But just two and half months later after it opened, it was gone. Still, many argue Occupy Boston's short-lived existence has had long-term impact. On this tenth anniversary, local Occupy participants assess the movement's successes and shortcomings. GUESTS: Jimi Two Feathers is a community organizer and founding member of Dance New England, Earth Drum Council and Concord Neighborhood Network. He was involved in the People of Color Working Group in Dewey Square.

This is part of a larger theme addressing patron-client relationships.  Providing an employment opportunity for someone in the local community is oftentimes expected and regarded as a way of giving back. It's important to know the best way to go about this particular relationship.

In this tenth episode of Next Normal, Amit is joined by the guest most frequently recommended by other Next Normal guests, Ai-jen Poo. Ai-jen is the co-founder and Executive Director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, a leading non-profit dedicated to bringing dignity to workers in the “care economy.” In this episode, Ai-jen reflects on experiences in her own life that inspire her work to ensure “every worker in care economy earns a living wage with real economic security and opportunity.” She discusses the “invisible economy” that has served as a lifeline during the pandemic and connects care workers' challenges to obstacles faced by other largely unseen and under-appreciated workers globally. As we strive to re-imagine the future of our economic system, Ai-jen suggests that the world turn its attention to the “original gig economy workers”— domestic workers.

This week's episode of the Worldwide Tribe podcast is about something we all need to know about... The Kafala System.Kafala means sponsorship. It's a system common across many Arab countries, where a citizen of that country can ‘sponsor' someone from a poorer country to come and work for them. There are around 400,000 migrant domestic workers in Lebanon under the Kafala System right now. They come from countries such as Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Ethiopia, Sudan, Ghana Kenya, and  others, to work in private households as maids. They are excluded from Lebanese labour law and 94% of these women have their passports confiscated by their employers on arrival. Their immigration status is also legally bound to the sponsor, leaving them at risk of exploitation, physical, emotional and sexual abuse. Shockingly, two of these women die in Lebanon every single week. Whilst in Beirut a few months ago, I got an insight into this system when I met a group of Nigerian women desperately trying to escape it. This episode is for them, and for every woman trapped in hell in this blatant example of modern day slavery. The least we can do is listen to them, learn about their plight and join them in calling for the immediate abolishment of the Kafala System. To find out more:https://thisislebanon.news/To buy a tshirt:https://theworldwidetribe.teemill.com/To donate:https://www.justgiving.com/prism-worldwidetribeSupport the show (https://www.justgiving.com/prism-worldwidetribe)Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/asylum-speakers-podcast-with-jaz-ohara-stories-of-migration.

I spoke with Banchi Yimer, founder of Egna Legna who define themselves as “community-based feminist activists working on migrant domestic workers' issues and general women's issues in Lebanon and Ethiopia.” She spoke to me about the Kafala System, the impacts of the economic crisis and the coronavirus pandemic on migrant domestic workers in Lebanon as well as her ongoing trauma after working in Lebanon for seven years. Yimer recently wrote a piece for The Public Source entitled “The Lebanese Revolution: A New Chapter of Kafala Misery“. Among their activities are various workshops teaching various skills to domestic workers in Lebanon, financial assistant, educational videos, establishing shelters, legal assistance as well as a brochure of Lebanon's bus map in Amharic, Ethiopia's dominant language. They also take part in the relevant demonstrations, such as the yearly Labor Day organised with the Alliance of Migrant Domestic Workers in Lebanon. They seek to, among other things, have the Lebanese government include domestic workers in the country's labor laws (they currently are excluded), as well as fight gender-based violence and racism. To put it mildly, their work is very difficult, so I urge you all to check out their work and support what they do. You can follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
