June 12, 2009 — Democracy Now: Joycelyn’s interview

Domestic Workers Bill of Rights, if passed, would amend New York state labor law and guarantee the over 200,000 nannies and housekeepers in New York state a living wage, overtime pay, sick leave, severance and health benefits, and protection from employment discrimination. It would be the first such bill in the country to challenge the exclusion of the nearly two million domestic workers countrywide from national labor law and set an important precedent for other states. Democracy Now speaks with a nanny-turned-organizer, Joycelyn Gill-Campbell.
