International Domestic Workers Day Campaign.
Most of the women workers who went to find employment in the service sector between 1990-2012, most of them are working in cleaning, cooking and caring for children and elderly in the homes. For so many years, there hasn’t been any policy or law to protect the rights of domestic workers identifying homes as workplace.
The Minimum Wage Act, which in reality has already left most of the workers of our country behind, does not even mention the domestic workers. Today, in the name of 'reform' in labor laws, these paper rights are also being erased. Therefore, there is a need that the workplace rights of domestic workers should be articulated keeping in mind the harassment and exploitation this section faces.
