[PODCAST] Taking Care of Solidarity: Domestic Workers Fighting for Their Rights in Spain

Courtesy to DW.

The series “Europe is Working” is in an inquiry into EU workers’ everyday workplace experiences, as well as into the possibility of solidarity and collective action across and despite different citizenship status. These podcasts are results of interviews with local and migrant workers as well as other relevant stakeholders (such as trade unionists or academics) across various economic sectors and European countries (Spain, Italy, Bulgaria, Czech Republic and Poland).

This first episode explores how the organized migrant domestic and care workers find mutual ground with the feminist movement in Spain. You will learn how migrant workers and local activists build a shared strike on the 8th of March.
