Advancing fairness, dignity, and respect for California workers
Workers across California who are living on low incomes play a vital role in driving California’s economy. The essential work of those who grow our nation’s food, provide homecare, and pack or deliver goods, among other jobs, has been even more evident since the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet too few workers have a seat at the table on the economic decisions that affect their lives and livelihoods.
The Fair Work initiative seeks to ensure greater fairness and opportunity for workers paid low wages, by supporting leaders, partnerships, and innovations that connect workers to vital information and services, reduce wage theft, ensure access to rights and benefits afforded in current law, and promote civic engagement.
Hear directly from workers in the multimedia storytelling project Wage Theft Stories, funded by The James Irvine Foundation. Wage Theft Stories chronicles workers’ fight to recover lost wages and highlights efforts by government and nonprofit leaders to aid workers and strengthen labor law enforcement.
