This community event will launch the public art and findings of a year-long research project – Working for Dignity: Low-Wage Worker Study of Santa Cruz County produced by the UCSC Center for Labor Studies. The event will showcase the project’s website and feature workers, researchers and students sharing their stories about low pay and wage theft. Community organizations will also be on hand to discuss new, monthly wage and hour clinics that can help those who have experienced wage theft to act. The event will conclude with a community dialog about workplace conditions and violations and what you can do.
Co-sponsored by the UCSC Center for Labor Studies, California Rural Legal Assistance, Chicano Latino Research Center, UC Humanities Research Institute, Santa Cruz Day Worker Center, and the Community Action Board of Santa Cruz County.
