I am currently a household worker for families and offices. I like that my job is flexible and because I am self-employed, I can decide the hours I will work at a home or an office. I don’t like that household work is not appreciated or valued and that sometimes people talk down or brusquely to workers.
I would like for household workers’ pay to be included in the Social Security system. I also think that there should be protections for undocumented folx so abuse is not prevalent and they can have the same rights as someone with legal status. I would like folx to value household workers and our work and to understand its importance.
