Why We Need a Domestic Workers Bill of Rights (with Ai-jen Poo)
Play • 48 min

Gloria talks all things care with Ai-jen Poo, President of the National Domestic Workers Alliance. Ai-jen has been advocating for care workers for over twenty years and outlines why caregivers are both undervalued and undercompensated, how the pandemic adversely affected millions of domestic workers, and the urgent need for a national Domestic Workers Bill of Rights. Plus, Gloria and Ai-jen poignantly reflect on how meaningful it was to be able to give their loved ones quality care towards the end of their lives.
