The Northwest Workers’ Justice Project exists to support the efforts of low-wage, immigrant and contingent workers to protect their workplace dignity and to improve wages and working conditions.
We believe that every worker has the right to live and labor with dignity, safety and hope.
Whether they’re caring for our children, harvesting our food , cleaning our offices and hotel rooms, or building and landscaping our communities, all workers deserve a sense of stability, freedom from fear in the workplace, and the assurance of a regular paycheck that is enough to meet their families’ basic needs.
People who work hard ought to be able to spend enough time with their families, participate in civic life, and contribute to making their community a better place to live.
We believe the solutions to the problems workers face will come from them. We will be here to support them as they fight for better working conditions and a brighter future for their children.
