Chapter 8: Minimum wages for domestic workers

8.6 Needs of domestic workers and their families

Assessing the needs of workers and their families is no different for domestic workers than for other workers. Generally this involves assessing the needs of domestic workers’ families in relation to the national and/or international poverty line, family size and number of individuals who work within the household.

See Section 5.3 on "The needs of workers and their families".
