SPRING/BREAK Art Show “Stranger Comes To Town”
March 4-12, 2018 – 4 Times Square, NYC
The Directors and Team of Spring/Break Art Show stand in solidarity with the activist movements of the domestic workers in the United States by taking in account their perspectives on feminization of poverty. We support the voices of working women by pledging to
honor and respect the work of household workers
pay at least $15/hour, if an employer
fair wage, using open communication to establish clear expectations, and provide paid time off
identify and support local organizations that support the rights of women workers, including domestic workers and others
support anti-trafficking organizations, including legal services and policy advocacy groups that support low-income workers
Red apron designed by artist Ekaterina Juskowski as a symbol of Feminist Solidarity invites people to assess their privilege by looking at the #NeverNotWorking hashtag in the context of workplace exploitation through wage theft, pay equity issues, and, in particular, the trafficking of individuals brought to the United States as part of the B1 domestic service workers visa program.
Learn about #NeverNotWorking campaign, take the pledge and join the movement.
