Domestic workers in Los Angeles and throughout the state of California may have been disappointed about Gov. Jerry Brown's decision last year to veto a bill that would have provided domestic workers with important and basic labor protections. But the fight for these workers to have basic protections is not over.
Yesterday, many American workers were able to enjoy a day off of work as our country honored and celebrated Labor Day. Over the decades, workers in California and throughout the entire country have not only made significant contributions to improve protections and workplace conditions for employees in all types of occupations, workers have also made significant contributions to our economy.
