Illinois Domestic Workers Bill of Rights
On Our Way to Victory!
Domestic workers (home cleaners, nannies, home care workers) have been excluded from basic labor laws — rights that all workers should have — for decades.
We have an opportunity to right this historic wrong! Arise Chicago and our local coalition have been organizing to win a Domestic Workers Bill of Rights that would include domestic workers in basic legal protections.
We’re the closest we’ve ever been in nearly 5 years of organizing. Both the Illinois House and Senate have passed the bill. We now need the governor to sign the bill into law.
From Oregon to Connecticut, states across the country are leading the way by finally extending fundamental labor protections to domestic workers. Together we can make Illinois next.
