'What does the jargon 'originalists view'  mean?  As the hearings on Gorsuch, take place , domestic and home care workers will be joining a growing chorus of voices in opposition to his nomination. What, you might ask, do domestic workers have to do with this? Why does it matter to domestic workers in particular, and why should you care? Our workforce has had a difficult history with the Supreme Court. This story foreshadows the implications of a Gorsuch appointment for all workers in this moment. We have again entered a phase in law-making, where discriminatory policies codifying exclusions based on race, religion, ability and immigration status have taken hold, emboldened by this Administration. With the appointmentwe risk losing the highest court in the land to partisan, ideologically-driven cruelty ,masked as “originalist” readings of both statute and law, repeating history again.'
