Working Groups: Jobs
Ending worker exploitation.
The exploitation of the lowest paid workers in the USA has been a sad legacy of the RGV. There has also been a extraordinary history of struggles to right this wrong, with organizations fighting to improve the lives of working families.
Shortly after its formation, the Jobs Working Group created Fuerza del Valle, a Workers' Center, and a space in which hourly wage workers could organize against the highest form of thievery in our region: the theft of wages.
Fuerza’s mission is to help workers discover their power and create solutions to the problems they experience at work. We are a mobile center so that we can reach out to workers across the Valley’s vast geographic area.
