Stories move you. Numbers wow you.
Put them together, and you will feel called to action.
DataCenter’s National Domestic Worker Survey is bringing stories and numbers together to create lasting social change for a workforce that has been isolated and abused for far too long. This month for Domestic Workers Corner, we bring you several stories with one number in common: 200,000. This is the never-before-quantified number of domestic workers in California–an number that DataCenter helped reveal. Look for it in each of the media below.
- Meet Today’s Help: In honor of newly released film The Help, chronicling nannies in Mississippi in the 1960s, NDWA released this short video about nannies and housekeepers in today’s society.
- SF Chronicle: Two domestic workers shared their knowledge loud and clear in their San Francisco Chronicle Letters to the Editor on August 5th.
- Assembly Bill 889 News: What’s going on with the Domestic Workers’ Bill of Rights in California?
