Domestic Workers Bill Killed In California By Jerry Brown Veto

The domestic workers' bill would have put "that same type of burden onto working families who are struggling, I'm sure, to already afford a nanny."
They should "self deport" and let their "clients" families take care of them themselves..........

Formally known as AB 889, the vetoed legislation called for protections similar to those that workers in other industries have enjoyed for years, including overtime pay and meal and rest breaks, as well as appropriate sleep accommodations for live-in workers and the ability to use employers' kitchens. Under the companionship exemption in California's 1976 wage regulations, domestic workers who take care of individuals do not qualify for those protections.

The underlying reason is pretty simple political math. Union membership, such as with the SEIU who would presumably fulfill some of these jobs, is falling and hispanic populations are increasing. Between 2000 and 2010 there was an increase in hispanic population of 15 million while the current union membership roles in the country are less than 15 million. The unions contributions don't cover the cost of blowback related to choosing them over hispanics.
