Women and girls leave their homes every day to find jobs as domestic workers in the cities of the United States.

 

But when they show up for their first day of work, some find out they’ve been deceived. Locked inside the homes of strangers, their passports taken away, often beaten and sexually abused, caught in the nightmare of modern slavery.

For the first time ever, there’s a global standard to protect domestic workers. It’s called Convention 189.12100_INSTRUMENT_ID:2551460:NO">1 14 key countries have already signed on11300_INSTRUMENT_ID:2551460">2 and momentum is growing for an international surge of support. If the United States ratifies now it will be crucial to ensure other countries in the region feel compelled to take action.

 

Call on the Government of the United States to ratify Convention 189 immediately and help end domestic slavery.

 

Around the world, there are at least 64.5 million domestic workers – over 15% are children. 3 Domestic work is a growing industry, worth US$8 billion in illegal profits every year. 4 If all domestic workers worked in one country, this country would be the tenth largest employer worldwide.

Domestic work is an important source of employment but the people behind these numbers are too often invisible behind the doors of private households and unprotected by national legislation. This allows for the worst types of abuse often amounting to modern slavery.

 

Tougher rules to protect domestic workers are long overdue. By sending a message to the Government of  the United States  today you can help start a domino effect until all countries take action.

 

14 countries have already taken this step – will yours be next?
