Did you know that nearly 2.5 million people in the US do some form of domestic work and that the vast majority of these workers are women? From nannies to eldercare workers, this pandemic has made it clear just how important these individuals are. So, what are we doing to support them? We sit down with Ai-jen Poo, Co-Founder and Executive Director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance to discuss exactly why our economic recovery must include women. Ai-jen Poo is a 2014 MacArthur "Genius" Award winner, the Director of Caring Across Generations, Co-Founder of SuperMajority and author of the celebrated book, "The Age of Dignity: Preparing for the Elder Boom in a Changing America".
