In New York City, hundreds of people marked May Day outside the Trump Building on Wall Street, protesting President Trump’s border wall and denouncing wage inequality. This is Christine Lewis, a domestic worker and labor organizer with Domestic Workers United.
Christine Lewis: “We are women, immigrant women, who work in the homes as nannies, caregivers, elder caregivers. We’re on Wall Street Half of these people in these buildings here have somebody who’s working care—who’s taking care of their home, their family and their dogs and their children. Who’s that person? … On this International Workers’ Day, my ask is that women who work in the homes be respected, the job is seen as real work, and a decent living wage.”
