Montgomery Domestic Workers Plead for Help

Date: February 8, 2005
Author: Tim Craig
QUOTE: Racism and sexism combined are the powerful forces domestic workers are struggling against to attain simple human dignity.

ABSTRACT: Fearing unemployment and deportation, many domestic workers claim they are forced to work many unpaid hours and endure mental and physical abuse. Community groups representing  them asked a Maryland county to pass legislation to protect them and setting a higher "living wage". County leaders were wary of undertaking such legislation because such laws are normally under federal and state jurisdiction.
