Everyone has the right to a safe and healthy working environment. The women and men who work in these salons deserve better. A high percentage of nail salon workers are Vietnamese immigrants who find economic stability through the profession. As the video above shows, these workers take pride in what they do. They shouldn't also have to take health risks.
Congress has the ability to better regulate cosmetic manufacturers. No one should go to work in an environment that could cause cancer, reproductive harm and other health risks. Tell your Congress members that we can do better as a country. Sign our petition to demand stronger regulations and stronger worker protections.
