Domestic Worker Pay Is Rising, But Not Enough to Keep Up With Cost of Rent, Food

More report making at least $15-an-hour, a survey released Tuesday finds. 

More domestic workers in the US are making at least $15 an hour, but the share who say they can’t make housing payments or afford food has held steady, a survey released Tuesday finds. 

A new report from NDWA Labs, the research wing of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, found that on average, 38% of nannies, home-care workers, and housecleaners are bringing in at least $15 an hour for their work, up from 30% earlier in the year.
