Empowering Women Day Laborers in Brooklyn

This Brooklyn corner has become a hot spot for immigrant women looking for work — and employers looking to exploit their cheap labor. The Workers Justice Project - Proyecto Justicia Laboral is hoping to flip the imbalance.

    There nothing wrong with that. good for them because at least someone is doing something positive instead of killing eachother.

    Funny, when someone mentions immigrants Americans automatically think they are undocumented.

    I have heard many stories about how domestic workers who are employed in Orthodox Jewish households and are required to get on their knees to clean the floor

    Modern day slavery? So are they getting paid or not? Calling bullshit no food or water and working on knees.

    This is so sad and true, I get a lot of these ladies as patients coming to the hospital with complaints of severe back ache, kidney problems, pregnancy, they all said they have to scrub floors on theirs knees, for long hours, and every day, I can never understand why they have to go on their knees to scrub floors, that was the way 500 years ago when there were no cleaning supplies, or electricity, why are people so backwards we have brooms, Lysol, vacuums for cleaning now and electricity. Have a little dignity and compassion for your other human beings
