40% OF DOMESTIC WORKERS ARE OVER 50 YEARS OLD, ONLY 2% HAVE RETIREMENT BENEFITS.
AGING DOES NOT WAIT
We are celebrating the 15th Anniversary of La Colectiva by starting a conversation about the aging of domestic workers, the care workforce that assist the elderly, and support us all.
Some of us young, others not so much, we all recognize the need to develop and discover relevant skills, new types of work, and more adequate supports for facing adversity, and aging with dignity.
The funds raised during the Aging with Dignity Campaign will begin creating:
A portable benefits tool in which multiple employers can crowd-fund the retirement of all domestic workers.
A learning experience for aging domestic workers to advance their technology and language proficiency.
A research study to further identify the needs, motivations and capabilities of aging domestic workers.
We are the entrepreneurs
We recently accomplished the historic victory of SB1015, the first bill of rights in California that defends domestic workers, united with hundreds of immigrant women organized as La Colectiva, California Domestic Workers Coalition, and National Domestic Workers Alliance.
