Justice in the Home: Filipino caregivers in California by MakingContact published on 2012-04-13T03:57:31Z There’s an estimated 2.5 million domestic workers nationally, almost 5 percent of whom are Filipino. A majority of them live in California and work as private caregivers to the elderly and the sick. Just like housecleaners and nannies, caregivers have also been subject to abusive work conditions. But some caregivers have started organizing to demand the rights they’ve lacked. Making Contact’s Lisa Bartfai has more on this story. A note to our listeners: the names of the caregivers you’ll hear from have been changed to protect them from possible retaliation.
