Alia, the newest technology platform to emerge from Fair Care Labs, will revolutionize work for thousands of domestic workers across the country and help undo legacies of generational racism and sexism that have shaped the industry for decades.

The Alia platform is the socially responsible way to pay the house cleaner you trust and finally allows house cleaners to enjoy the benefits that most of us take for granted in our jobs.
