Domestics Rally In Support of Domestic Workers Bill of Rights in CA

Right now, there are hundreds of supporters in the CA state capital lobbying in support of AB889 the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights.

The CA Domestic Workers Bill of Rights is currently in the Senate Appropriations Committee suspense file meaning that it is at risk of dying. Deadline to get this out of Appropriations is 8/25. If you support the bill take action NOW.

SUPPORTERS MAKE THIS CALL:
“I ask the Senator to support the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights (AB889) in the next appropriations committee hearing. Domestic workers are the bedrock of our state’s workforce. A vote in support for AB889 is a step forward in shared economic prosperity and growth.”

Mimi Walter (R- Laguna Hills) (916) 651-4033
Elaine Alquist (D- San Jose) (916) 651-4013
Bill Emmerson (D-Riverside) (916) 651-4031
Ted W. Lieu (D-Torrance) (916) 651-4028
Fran Pavley (D-Santa Monica) (916) 651-4023

Sharon Runner (R- Santa Clarita) (916) 651-4017
Darrell Steinberg (D- Sacramento) (916) 651-4006

OPPOSERS MAKE THIS CALL:
“I ask the Senator to oppose the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights (AB889) in the next appropriations committee hearing. The penalties associated with non-compliance would be a reason for domestic employers not to hire domestic workers on a legal payroll to avoid statutes in AB889. I feel many of the rights listed in the bill are redundant and already exist in CA labor laws.”

  1. I haven't written comment before since I'm not a good writer. But I have been following topic. I really hope it goes through. I wrote a letter in support privately. I can't argue but just want you to know a lot of people are reading and learning about both sides and thank you for telling us about this. Not a California resident I think I won't worry to much about it now. But I'm glad I sent my letter of support since we all need to support one another. Just know we are learning even if we aren't commenting.

  2. I very much suppot the bill. I don't live in California. So it wouldn't make sense for me to call now right?

  3. Probably not Fiona. I don't think out of state calls matter.

  4. I really hope this works but I think those in California shouldn't call now, it's those in California that should call their specific Senator.

  5. I mean residents of other states should not bother calling. (I'm tired).
