Worker-owned domestic cleaning businesses are gearing up for a massive expansion
This may be of some interest.
Brightly, a beloved worker-owned cleaning cooperative in New York City, is relaunching as a franchise to help swiftly establish more coops across the country.
For domestic workers like home cleaners, having a job often does not guarantee bringing in enough wages to get by. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, home cleaners earn just around $11 per hour. Their schedules are often unpredictable, and they’re not offered benefits. And if they find jobs through a gig-economy platform like Handy, they likely have to give around 20% of what they’re paid—sometimes even more—back to the platform.
