Domestic Workers United fights for fair working conditions and pay for domestic workers in New York state. In September 2010, after years of hard work and advocacy, they won passage of the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights which is the first legislation in the country to provide domestic workers with basic workplace protections, including paid sick and vacation days, overtime pay, and one day of rest per week.
