Latinos/as – Maria Lorena Quintanilla, 46

Reporting Texas

Maria Lorena Quintanilla is a housekeeper in Austin, Texas, where she has made a living as a housekeeper for 11 years. Stay-at-home orders limit the amount of work she can complete every week, and while her husband’s income helps keep the family afloat, Quintanilla is eager to return to the work she loves.

“I do get stressed because I’m not imposed to just stay home and bring little money.”
