Why Are Domestic Workers’ Rights Essential? with Alicia Garza
47 min

There are more than 2.5 million care workers, nannies, and house cleaners across the United States. They are skilled professionals. Their labor is essential. So are their rights.

 

Alicia Garza, who is the Director of Strategy & Partnerships for the National Domestic Workers Alliance, joins Jonathan to discuss the history of domestic work in the United States, why domestic workers are some of the least protected, most vulnerable individuals—without access to health care, paid sick days, or a living wage—and what a Domestic Workers Bill of Rights could offer these workers in the way of proper compensation, labor protections, and dignity.

 

Beyond her work with the NDWA, Alicia Garza is the co-creator of the Black Lives Matter Global Network, the principal at the Black Futures Lab, a writer, and a podcast host. Her new book The Purpose of Power: How We Come Together When We Fall Apart is out now.

This week, Kate takes a deep dive into the culture of TikTok and Doree speaks candidly with a financial coach, then Naomi Ekperigin (comedian, actor, and writer known for Broad City, Great News, and HBO’s Mrs. Fletcher, and the podcast Couple’s Therapy) joins them behind the mic. Doree and Naomi bond over cozy mysteries, and they discuss how enjoying something does not make it self-care, whether an invitation automatically includes your SO, and how Jonathan Van Ness became her hairdresser.
