The invisible workforce: My fight for migrant Domestic Workers in the UK

“We are weak as individuals, stronger as a collective.”
Domestic workers are undervalued by society, but Marissa sees them as the ‘fuel of the economy’ and wants them to be recognised as such. Marissa shares her journey as a domestic worker, the challenges that changes to government policy have had on the women she seeks to support, and her fight to ensure that domestic workers are recognised as workers.
