Leah writes:

“The Labour of Love campaign is an initiative from the Migrant Rights Centre Ireland (MRCI) and MRCI’s Domestic Workers’ Action Group. The campaign is calling for the protection of au pairs’ employment rights in Ireland and the immediate introduction of a work permit for domestic work, to help end the hidden exploitation of vulnerable workers in private homes across Ireland. It is being launched to coincide with International Women’s Day which is on Sunday.”
