A few weeks ago, we launched the Workers Enforcement Fundraising Project to support workers who are organizing for just, enforceable labor laws in New York State. We’ve raised several thousand so far, but we need your help to reach out goal of $25,000! Help us continue to build this movement by visiting the fundraising campaign website to make a donation today and spread the word to friends and family.
For years, working people–lead by those who are the hardest hit by wage theft and sweatshop conditions such as workers in restaurants, delis and nail salons–have been organizing for stronger labor laws and an end to wage theft and other sweatshop conditions. Efren Caballero is one such worker:
“I was working at Indus Valley. At first, they paid me $2.85 an hour. Later it went up to $5.83 an hour, but I had to work 6, sometimes 7 days, with no overtime pay. I lived nearby with my family, and the boss would often call me to work even on my day off. I almost didn’t have any breaks.
We can change the law. We the workers need to get together to fight for our rights. If we do not, nobody is going to do it for us.
Thanks to places like NMASS, we are seeing changes. If it wasn’t for fighting organizations like NMASS, it wouldn’t be worthwhile to stand up.“
With your help, Efren and other workers can win the fight against wage theft and sweatshop conditions by continuing to organize workers, advocates, faith groups and elected officials to demand stronger, enforceable labor laws in New York State.
If you haven’t already done so, we urge you to make a contribution to this campaign. Help us reach our goal of $25,000 by July 4th
