Today on Your Call: What’s the path to justice for domestic workers?
On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about the struggles and successes of domestic workers. New York recently passed a Domestic Workers’ Bill of Rights, which provides standards and protections for an otherwise unregulated and often exploited workforce.

What’s fair treatment? And how should it be enforced? It’s Your Call with Holly Kernan, and you.
