Hi all. I have started a campaign in South Africa, calling on the Minister of Labour to recognize domestic worker's rights by including them in the Compensation for Injury and Diseases Act. Domestic workers are of the most vulnerable workers in society and the nature of domestic work opens itself up to abuse. This is a call to sign a petition, to show the government that domestic work is work, and domestic workers should be protected and respected. By including domestic workers in this act, they will be able to get access to medical care when injured on the job. Funding their own medical care is often times impossible because of the ridiculously small amount of money they are paid.
Please sign this campaign to show your solidarity with domestic workers!
