RIGHT TO CARE
In sunny Los Angeles, home to the largest concentration of domestic workers in the country, Teresita & Emily are on the front lines, fighting to bring the caregiving workforce out of the shadows. When they arrived from the Philippines, their first jobs in elderly care were exploitative and isolating. Now, they are fighting to pass a law that will give overtime protections to all domestic workers in California. In the meantime, they continue their work as caregivers under happier conditions. RIGHT TO CARE is a moving portrait of the fast-changing caring economy of the 21st century, where we’re all caregivers in one form, and all in need of care in another.
