Cabo Verde Household Employees Association wants to fight for the class to work professionally

Praia, Jan 31 (Inforpress) – The president of ASED-CV affirmed today that they intend to promote training actions focused at guaranteeing the empowerment of the class, adding that the association will do everything for the class to start practicing the profession with a signed professional card.

Maria Gonçalves, president of the Cabo Verde Household Employees Association (ASED-CV), who spoke in statements to Inforpress, said that because it was an association recently created to defend the class and its official publication was published in the Official Bulletin, they are still outlining the plan and goals for 2019.

As she said, the association has several challenges, having pointed to the issue of minimum wage, vacation entitlement, maternity leave, right to housing credit, early retirement, social security enrollment as the main constraints faced by the class representing about 6% of workers in Cabo Verde.

This official complained that, in addition to the class being not valued and respected in Cabo Verde, it was discriminated negatively by the Government when the latter created the unemployment benefit, but did not include domestic servants, taking into account, she added, that domestic servants are also part of the country’s vulnerable class.
