March 3

On this very morning, in 2017, Lizbeth Miller of Orange County, CA. was incensed to discover that her housekeeper - a young, undocumented woman from Central America who cooks, cleans, runs errands, and looks after the Miller children six days a week, for $6.50 an hour - had machine washed the limited-edition Louis Vouiton Pink Pussy hat she had purchased as a keepsake of the historic women's march on Washington, which she'd read about in the February issue of Sunset Magazine. To her credit, Miller has refrained from reporting her housekeeper to INS, but will dock the young woman's salary until the $350 she paid for the hat is recouped.
