​”I am proud that Massachusetts is now one step closer to eliminating the gap between the workplace rights afforded to domestic workers and the rest of our workforce. I applaud the Legislature for working diligently to produce the Massachusetts Domestic Workers’ Bill of Rights. This will ensure that workers
who make all other work possible are protected, respected, and treated with dignity. The labor of our domestic workers has been undervalued for far too long and it is time that we extend to them important labor protections against discrimination, sexual harassment and retaliation. With the advancement of the Domestic Workers’ Bill of Rights and legislation to increase our minimum wage, this is a good day for the working people of Boston and from every community in Massachusetts.​”​​
