Every working person deserves to be treated with respect, whether they work in an office, a restaurant, a construction site, or in a home. Jewish sacred texts tell us that when we are in the employer role, we must give our employees fair and timely compensation and maintain workplaces that offer true dignity and respect.
We’ve joined the National Domestic Worker Alliance along with partners across the city in strong support of the quick passage of this long overdue bill. After a hearing in June through the DC Council’s Labor and Workforce Development Committee chaired by Councilmember Silverman, Chairman Mendelson’s committee referral changed, moving the bill through the Committee on Business and Economic Development and chair Councilmember McDuffie. This could cause delays in the passage of this critical legislation before the end of this Council session in December. We need to tell Councilmember McDuffie that we want to see this bill passed in this council session.
Join NDWA, DC Jobs with Justice, and more, and tell Councilmember McDuffie to move this bill forward!
