Global: Let us continue to fight until all workers are free
- Global: Let us continue to fight until all workers are free
- An encouragement message to all domestic workers by Myrtle Witbooi on this special Christmas Day 2015.
"I believe you are having a Christmas party. I know you are far away home from the family. I know some of you are missing your children, but you do have a reason why you are working abroad."
"We are thinking about you all on this special Christmas Day. We encourage you to go to a strong organization:
- to speak up for your rights;
- to learn about all the labour laws in that country;
- to ensure you know why you are working in that country;
- to know that the IDWF is your voice and we cares for all the domestic workers."
"Although you are far away from your family, you are therefore the special reason.
Let us continue to fight until all workers are free, until everybody recognizes our work as decent work."
"We salute you. We wish you well. Have a super party!"
