Workers' rights advocates are applauding a federal ruling that says au pairs in Massachusetts are protected domestic workers that must be paid minimum wage and overtime. Some host families are concerned the change will make bringing au pairs into their homes unaffordable. We speak to people on both sides of the issue — Keli Callaghan with Au Pair Families of Massachusetts and Thaty Oliveira, a leader of the Matahari Women Workers' Center's au pair committee.

This segment aired on January 9, 2020.
