Working Groups: Jobs

Ending worker exploitation

Mission

The Jobs Working Group is focused on community empowerment through equitable economic development initiatives that protect workers.

Values

  • All workers have the same rights

  • We believe women of color should be at the forefront of leadership because their voice are important

  • We believe municipal and state governments should work harder to know who they contract with and under what conditions

Goals

  • We will work to improve employment conditions that fortify accountability of employers

    • to follow policies that avoid accidents on the job

    • to protect workers against sexual harassment and assault

  • We must address worker abuse that is occurring in specific industries such as used clothes, downtown businesses and the food service industry.

    • People who are undocumented are fearful of workplace retaliation for speaking out. We must work to empower them to hold abusive employers accountable
