Wide Open Walls Brings Attention to the Struggle for Workplace Rights

Supporting our community is very important to the Center for Workers’ Rights. This weekend we stopped by a local k-8 school during a very special event in which parents and volunteers came together to beautify the campus. Murals were painted all around the campus. Some depict icons like Dolores Huerta, who reminds us of the continuous fight to improve working conditions. Our efforts to support working families and expand their rights are the core of our mission. 

Many families we met were eager to hear about the support the Center for Workers’ Rights provides to workers. We shared our newly developed “Hours Worked” calendar, a tool for workers to keep track of their hours even if their employer has a standardized method of doing so. In many of our wage claim cases, one of the obstacles most often confronted by workers is a discrepancy between the hours the worker claims to have worked and the hours the employer has claimed. 

Being able to talk to parents while enjoying the creation of art, allowed us to focus on the empowering aspects of workplace rights enforcement. We were very happy to bring our resources to working parents this weekend. Thank you for having us @wideopenwalls
